Painted: 1987 Published: 1987
The old mill pond is an important symbol to many Americans. Its calm presence represents a less hurried time when life’s ambitions were in proper perspective. Such reordering of priorities is evident on this peaceful autumn afternoon as we look over the beautiful landscape. The mill owner has built a viewing platform overlooking the pond and, recognizing the moving water’s healing power, often sits and in the rocking chair listening to its soothing sounds.
