Fantastical Pond

The pond, the pond.  I spent a couple hours at the pond yesterday when the sun finally came out. There's something magical, dark and fantastical about this pond.  This painting is a 9x12 oil on linen.

I've been reading Julian Barnes' "Keeping An Eye Open: Essays on Art."   He quotes Georges Braque, who wrote, "The only thing that matters in art is what cannot be explained."  Barnes tries to explain a few things nevertheless, but I like the quote, nevertheless.  I'm trying to get at something I can't explain.
