About This Painting

There is something quite peaceful about gazing at a pond covered with lily pads... this scene from the reflecting pond at Balboa Park in San Diego, California.

If you stand there staring long enough you can almost imagine a frog jumping out to sit on one, crown and all.

As I painted this impressionistic interpretation of the floating leaves and flower, amazed at this odd creation that grows flat out on the surface of the water, my mind drifted to a silly old pun/joke from the 70s, when such peculiar language was more common:

A handsome frog fellow met a beautiful frog gal at a wedding reception and they hit if off so well that as the party began to thin out, she asked him if they could get together for coffee to make their acquaintance last a bit longer, to which he replied, "My pad or yours?"
