Mill Pond is the title of this highly textured oil painting by Massachusetts artist Bruce Wood. Created in 2012, the image shows one of the many small mill ponds which dot the New England countryside. This one, near the artist's home, was created for a now-abandoned mill. The pond has become shallow with sediment, and is slowly turning into a scenic wetland.
Wood's paintings are inspired by the the 19th Century American Impressionists and Tonalists. However, the scene is invigorated by his training as a contemporary artist.
The 16" x 20" image is on stretched canvas. It is framed in a custom gold-metal leafed wooden frame measuring 22" x 26.5". It is signed on the front, and signed, titled and dated on the back of the canvas.

Currently he is the oil painting conservator and director of the Woodshed Gallery in Franklin, Massachusetts, and an active member of the Lyme Art Association, Cape Cod Art Association, Wellesley Society of Artists and several other New England art associations.
