Frozen Beaver Pond
oil on canvas
This was the wetlands behind my house in winter, during the time the
beavers moved in and dammed up the wash of water to create a pond and
before Fairfax County "traded" this wetland so that they could
push through a 4 lane "parkway". I didn't know they could do
that. Neither did the beavers, who quietly and mysteriously disappeared.
Anyway, we had years of pleasure watching, seeing an occasional beaver,
walking GI (our dog) before Progress took over.
