Harmonizing Down by The Pond

This little 5" x 9" watercolor, "Harmonizing Down by The Pond", was inspired by a friend's love for frogs and my need to create a special gift to show my gratitude for her kind and sweet willingness to sew a few outfits for me while I convalesced after surgery this past year. It was a fun and whimsical piece to paint and I loved being able to use such brilliant colors, especially the acqua pigment. This piece includes 2 Red-Eyed Tree Frogs, 1 White- lipped Green Tree Frog and 1 simple Green garden frog. They are social creatures and love to sing in the evenings. They are not poisonous at all and children and adults alike love watching their comical ways. Since we all experience difficulties and burdens at times in our lives it is such an encouragement to know that we are not alone. The Lord is with us and gives us courage and strength at such times and a heart to praise God ...It is He who puts a new song in our mouths (Psalm 40:1-3) and that is wonderful medicine! 140 Lb Hot Press Arches Paper 2013 You can see a more colorful version on our website www.hislambsonline.org

Artist Reply: Thanks so much Joanie...This photo is a little too dark so I have replaced it & just waiting for AW confirmation. It was a delight to paint. But the reward was the excitement of my friend when she received it...that made my day!
