Party on the Lake

Quiet Cove, 12 x 16

This is "party cove" on Lake Austin in the summers. Young boaters tie their boats together here to make one giant, floating unit and party for hours. On this quiet morning, no one was on the lake at all. It was as still as can be with great reflections and stunning fall color sparkling on the distant shore. A totally different kind of party... but we, too, stayed for hours.

Hi Laurel,
How incredibly lovely. You have such a great way of putting the viewer in the picture, while keeping the painting fresh in true to your own
style. Fabulous!

take care,

Hi Laurel,

That should read "fresh and true to your own style." Oops. Sorry in a hurry.

Take care,

Your work is an inspiration.

Hi, I really like this painting. The dark forground colors and the muted greens and reds in the middle and backgrounds. I looks like a fall morning.

the colors are so fresh, and your spontaneity makes the scene so lovely, you are an inspiration (to quote Barbara)--you make me want to just paint paint paint!!

(instead here I am at the Mac . . . . )

Best to you and your palette, Jann

Wow, I'm impressed by how quiet you got the tree reflections to be, even while they are still filled with color.
