My Dried-up Studio Pond

My studio is built over a large seasonal pond, almost a lake really. From May to October, it is a beautiful, deep mirror of reflection. By December it is a puddle and the end of February a mud pit. Right now, the mud is baked dry and awaiting the water that fills it in Spring. I anxiously look forward to the water returning at this time of year.

The pond is a constant source of inspiration to me, even today when it is at it's dryest point I find the shadows on the earth attractive. Already, the willow trees are showing a hint of green as everything starts to wake-up for the start of the warmer weather.

Here are a couple of images from the studio today.
