Sky Water

Yesterday afternoon I made it back to the larger pond.  In the chapter on "Ponds" in Walden,  Thoreau writes, "A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature.  It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature."  A few lines later, he uses the phrase, "Sky water."  This painting is a 12x12 oil on panel.
