This painting was inspired by my grandson looking for tadpoles at the edge of a small lake. This composition reminded me of some of the paintings by the Impressionists which further suggested a similar treatment of this scene. I thought it gave the viewer an impressionistic snapshot in time of a young boy enjoying a moment of carefree curiosity and discovery. The location was Prospect Lake, Victoria, BC.
This is an oil painting on a 12" by 16" canvas board. Available
