Symphony in the Pond

I love being an artist! I don't know if it was the spicy Ethiopian food I ate for lunch or the intense colors of Autumn leaves against the blue sky on my afternoon walk, but something definitely inspired me to paint on Sunday! I am pleased with how this painting turned out. It is a study of color, light, texture and composition. I used gouache on cold press illustration board. This painting is dedicated to my mom, who always encouraged my creativity.
