Summer Lake Series
I made this painting in mid-July sitting at North Avenue Beach before playing a volleyball game. The sky was dark, appearing as though it might rain and the lake reflecting the dark clouds appeared almost inky in color. I made this painting using a generous amounts of paint and water, which is not typical of my controlled painting style. It was a fun painting to make. Each time I paint the sky and the lake I think the beautiful paintings of Winslow Homer, whose beautiful nature paintings, which continually inspire me.
