These two girls were sitting on the edge of Chapel pond when I was out painting one morning last summer. I don't have any figures in my landscapes (too many hated life drawing classes, I think) but when I saw these two with the light playing off the water behind them I couldn't resist.The vantage point is unique there because you have to decend down a steep rocky hill to get to the water so you are looking down at the water's edge. Chapel Pond is a beautiful and restful spot on a hot summers day. Just the thing to keep my mind off the storm raging outside.
