The changing light


One of the prime aspects of the Impressionists' paintings is the capturing of light. What is it doing now to the scene I'm looking at, right now? That is why they painted so quickly, to capture the moment.

I followed Joan in looking at the water lily pond by 15 minutes and found myself in a different moment of light. Clouds had covered the sun and I got a more muted view of the pond and its reflections.

Enjoy the moment.
