|Pond at Midday, pastel on board by Adriana Meiss|
After a short break to see the All Things Cazenovia exhibit at the gallery (my painting A Chance of Rain is in the show!), I found a shaded spot with a bench and decided to paint from there. I wanted to challenge myself by painting submerged vegetation in the pond but I chickened out and painted a shed instead. The strong contrast of the lit and shadowed areas in the shed versus the lack of contrast in the grasses and trees appealed to me.
