Too Good Pond



Today was Thanksgiving holiday. I thought there would be fewer visitors here because everyone should have been very busy with preparing the Thanksgiving dinner. But it was not. The pond was beautiful, leaves were turning colours., everyone was busy with taking photos. The original plan was painting the foliage. It was just too many people at the locations of the foliage. I kept going and searching for a spot. Finally, I decided to paint two friends who were fishing. Like things happened before, they were gone before I finished the painting.

Many people looked at me when I was painting. It was kind of hard to focus. A lady started talking to me and telling me she is from Lebanon, where is the neighbour of Syria. Thankfully she is here in Canada, a much more safer place. She looked very happy and put a piece of maple leave on the jacket as a brooch. It was a bit windy, my stuff was flipped over a couple times. I feel so thankful that I had done a painting on such a nice day and peaceful place.

今天是感恩節假期,以為會沒有那麽多人,所以來寫生。可是人一樣很多,風景很美,秋天紅葉,大家都忙著拍照。本來想畫紅葉,但有紅葉的地方很多人。一邊向前走,一邊選景,看到了一對友人在垂釣,就決定畫他們,當然和以往的經歷一樣,畫未畫完,他們便離開了。

在畫畫的過程中,途人不斷,集中有點難。當中有位女士走過來讚了我的畫,並告訴我她在黎巴嫩來的!想起在那個危險的地方,能來到這裡,我也替她高興。秋風凜凜,畫具吹翻了數次。不過陽光景色怡人,也算在感恩節完成了一項感恩的事。
