Goal Accomplished - 12th Month of Painting at Quail Hollow Pond

by Sue
(Felton, Ca.)

I did it! Here is my final painting of the series where I set myself the goal of painting at Quail Hollow Pond each month for a year. I have come full circle from starting in November 2010. I managed to do 11 paintings - I missed one month due to being away in England on a family visit.

It has been such a worthwhile journey and I'm glad I did it. I have learned so much about myself in this process. One of the main things I learned is that painting and art are my great comfort and joy in life - no matter what difficulties are at hand, once I am painting and creating, I forget about them and come back to myself through art and the process of creating.

This month I decided to paint a larger panel - 11 x 14 - in honor of the occasion and to celebrate the beautiful pond. My friend and fellow artist, Marlene Fredlund came along with her cute little dog, Charlie - see photo of Charlie.

I confess to having shed a tear as I was leaving. I will miss my monthly date with the Pond - but then realized, I live only a few miles away and can come here anytime and paint or just visit my animal and bird friends that live at the Pond.
