Frozen Pond

Seems like I forgot to post this one from our recent deep freeze, so I am taking care of that now.  Hard to believe I was painting in this when today was in the 70s!  As I approached the scene, a few things came to mind for my composition. For example,  I used my artistic license to melt that ice a little.  The flat, rather non reflective surface was just not what I wanted, so I painted a more engaging surface to the ice!  That pinkish early light soon faded to cloudy, so I kept the original glow, and reflected that on the melting surface.  Sometimes, I paint more what I feel than what's before me.  Painting number 2983 in 2983 days.
