We All Love Summer
View from the kayak
Research and painting. That's what makes up summer for me, and I am in heaven. Spending time on Lake Tahoe, in kayak and rowing shell or on my SUP, I weave my way through the massive boulders that decorate the shore of Tahoe bringing back to the studio mental images of those granite monoliths that become inspiration for my paintings.
It has been a summer of commissions and the newest is currently on the easel.

How the painting looks today.
This is the beginning of the commission, with more to accomplish during the daily painting time in the studio. I am still out on the lake enjoying the never ending research, observing the beauty of Tahoe so that I can bring it back into my studio and interpret what I see.
