Day 12, 30 in 30

Neighborhood Pond

It was cloudy this morning and I could not think of a location that might work for plein air.

There is a small pond 2 neighborhoods over which is usually dark and scummy, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to at least stop by and see how it was looking today.
The scum had cleared a little to over one side and it thought I could push the color
a bit.  I remember Dee Beard Dean, smiling that pretty smile
of hers, and saying, "Lie if you have to."  and it has been one
of my mantras ever since.
