Plein Air Painting

"Mike's Catfish Pond"
12 x 16 Oil on canvas panel
I love this little pond which joins our farm. It just begs to be painted! That is Mike's house in the background. He is down at his pond fishing often in the summer. That is our field on the near side of the pond. The heavy rains filled the pond to over-flowing and running down the sid eof our field. His trees near the edge are still standing in water.
I started this outside yesterday and finished today smoothing up tree trunks and adding fence.
Thanks for viewing.


  1. Wow! Makes me feel like I was back there visiting you!!

  2. Lovely landscape painting Sunny.The atmosphere looks so serene.

  3. Very nice Sunny! And good for you for getting outside to paint. You are lucky to live so close to such a lovely and picturesque setting. You could probably do an entire series of paintings of this pond.

  4. So pretty..........I love the colors you chose! blessings, Kathleen

  5. A great painting of your beautiful neck of the woods, Sunny!

    I envy Mike! Oh, to have my very own fishing pond!!!!
