Lac La Belle



I painted these two a couple weeks ago. I got wet and so did everything else. It is very frustrating when you see something you like and the paint doesn't want to stick to the surface. Oil and water....
At the same time it gets me to do something different and sometimes that texture is really cool. Getting outside of myself at this stage in my career is usually a good thing. I want to keep growing and pushing. But this was a beautiful night to be sitting outside over looking a lake. I respond to the way the water and sky become abstract, probably just like Turner.
