"Lakeside" - SOLD



This scene is very near the bridge from yesterday. I went back to paint the bridge again from another angle, in different light, but wasn't feeling inspired. I was just about to paint it anyway, when I glanced around and saw this little scene. It could be anywhere, but I really liked the little island with the small rocks, the reflected blue sky, and the tall grass in front. It's not a great photo - I will retake and repost.

Several people asked who the artists are I reference when I'm looking for fabulous landscapes. To name a few: Jennifer McChristian, Jill Carver, Larry Moore, Greg Larock, Colin Page, Calvin Liang, Darcie Peet, and Kathryn Stats. All wundabar!

This is fabulous! So much information with so little detail, and the colors!

This is stunning! I think it's your best landscape from Germany so far. There's great variety in the greens and the sparkling blues just pop. It's wonderful!

This is Spectacular. Wow. Hope you're having a wonderful time in Germany, makes me 'homesick' to see your paintings there.
