In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Serenity.”
One of my favorite watercolor painting sites is a lotus and waterlily pond not far from my home, built by a homeowner at a site within a dense stand of redwood forest. The owner makes the pond available to our painting group on request, about once each year, and it is one of the most silent, serene places we get to enjoy on any painting excursions. It is very difficult to capture the beauty of this pond, with its crystal clear water, and the multitude of colors one can see on the surface and below. If I had the run of the place I know I might want to go there more often, simply to meditate.
