Painting at a Beaver Pond

Painting on site at favourite spot not too far from home is pleasure I have enjoyed to this day. It has become increasingly hard to find site though as suburban development and logging increasingly make finding sites difficult. It is always interesting to watch the seasonal changes while responding with paint on canvas and this particular site involved walking from a lake and then up a brook until reaching the widening that had been created by the beavers. The water was held back by the beavers dam blocking the water creating a pond and marshy area all around.
