lone lake

High Water; casein on board; 10" x 8"

There is an incredible amount of activity and life at the edge of a body of water.  Bugs, birds and unknown splashing things were my companions today - as well as walkers, both 2 and 4-legged, on the path nearby.  With a scene like this - where there are seemingly infinite amounts of twigs, branches and stalks - you really have to edit things down to what you most need in order to tell your story.  It also helps to keep your feet out of the muck.

Today's painting is number 76 of the 100-painting Reboot - 24 more to go.
