Shore Acres Pond

Beyond Shore Acres State Park’s formal gardens lies the Japanese style gardens and lily pond.   It was windy and chilly spring day when I visited Shore Acres to paint.  The pond, which was set low and protected from the wind, seemed to be in another world, even though the ocean waves could be heard crashing against the cliff yards away.  My awareness of the agitation of the surrounding environment appears reflected in this painting of a still pool.
