"Inks Lake" --- SOLD



We had a wonderful time at Inks Lake. Sally is a fabulous painter, a fabulous camping/painting buddy, and a fabulous person in general. She was like an old friend by the second day. This isn't to say we had no mishaps. We battled wind, ants, intense heat ... chased umbrella's, nursed sunburns, dragged our painting gear for MILES (ok, maybe not that far), and cried over squished paintings ... but it was all made worth it by a couple dips in the lake, an air-conditioned pop-up, and a few good paintings for both of us. This was my first painting, the only one I got with the actual lake in it.

I love the way your brush strokes make the sunlight dance on the water! Sounds like a fun trip even with the bugs, heat et al!

Isn't it exhilerating to paint outdoors, despite the what mother nature throws your way. Beautiful!

sounds like you had quite an adventure! This piece is very nice. I love the muddy reflection of the trees.

You should do more plein air painting - this looks great. It also sounds like you might have caught the bug - although I do hope you didn't catch bugs in your paint! ;)

Wow! Something totally different that what we usually see and boy do I like it. The painting has such energy. It must be from dancing around those fire ants. HA.
