Good to be Back

The Lake House. Oil on canvas, 6x12. Sold

I brought canvases and matching frames with me, so I can make paintings and then hang them in the Denmark Arts Center. I've made a big sign - Fresh Paintings! Get 'em while they're wet! and I told everyone at the opening to come on back - that there would be new paintings to see.

I'm enjoying painting here. Looking at the landscapes, being in the landscapes, brings me back to the years when we lived here. Sure, there were tough times, tough enough so that, in the end, we moved away. But this is a beautiful place, wild and, for the most part, unspoiled. It's wonderful to be back here, and even more wonderful to be painting here.
