Describing this painting the artist wrote, “I completed Nancy and the Swans in March of 2000 from studies made from life during a 1998 visit to Wales.. Nancy, of course, is my favorite subject and I have included her in many of my outdoor sketches. The location here is in the south of Wales at a pond near a newly restored 11th-century castle. The early morning mist, the storybook landscape, the swans and Nancy, all came together offering an irresistible moment of classic romance.”
