Up to the Lake

This is the view from the bay, looking towards my Aunt's camp at Trout Lake.
It's one of the few original "camps" on the lake
 that has managed to basically remain unchanged 
and not been knocked down or converted into a huge summer home.
 Updated with all the modern conveniences, it still harkens back to a time on the lake when
life was simpler, quieter, and relaxing. The way I prefer to remember it. 
Still a long way to go on this one, but it's coming along.

From The Bay

The "dog (and cat) days" of my summer are pretty much over, 
so there's a new one just underway on the easel...and finally one I can share!
Aside from the familiar subject matter (to some family members),
 this one is about the light.

Hey Mickey

For the past few years, my wife and I have returned to Stowe Vt. for our Anniversary. We stay at a classic New England inn, The Gables Inn. Mickey is the inns welcoming committee. I took his picture last year, with the intent to paint him, but it got lost in the shuffle. Our trip to Vt. is coming up so it reminded me, and I dug it up...I've been having a bit of "painters block" lately, so I thank you Mickey!
