Proctor Pond

Like a good friendship, a painting idea can take time to develop.

I visited Proctor Pond last fall and it was a nice introduction.

Twelve months and several sketches later, I returned for another look.

Now we’re old pals.

    Hello Peter…Is this what we called Beaver Pond growing up as kids? I recently visited it and it looks like they have started to clean up what used to be the picnic area.

    Your paintings make me long to visit Vermont again. I’m sure it’s glorious with the leaves changing! I’m a beginner in watercolor and I’d love to paint some of the beautiful landscape there.

    Great work as usual! Do you know if this is the pond where Proctor had swimming for the kids back in the 60s? I remember going there once but don’t really know where I was.

    I like your comparison of painting ideas to developing friendships. With a good friendship the best and most valuable memories are what remain with us and strengthen the bond over time. The best paintings, at least in my opinion , tend to capture the essence of the subject while limiting the use of detail.
