Pastel—7″ x 10″

"It's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way."
~ Claude Monet

Like life, it’s all about how you look at it. Walking through Eden Park, I came upon this peaceful scene. It was a hot summer day and the water was still. It was difficult to tell where the reflection ended and the actual landscape began. In the magic of the finished painting, when turned upside down, the reflected landscape became a peaceful valley with rocky terrain.
