‘Morning on Kootenay Lake’ – 16 x 20 – Acrylic on Canvas

Phew! Finally finished this one. All I can say is that life is busy right now but when I finally set to work painting again I’m always so appreciative, I soak in the time to myself, focus in a meditative way, relax and enjoy every minute. I am also still really enjoying the process of creating local landscapes – makes me even more grateful for where I live.11068082_10153080964562279_4273648256550323197_n12694621_1979245695633382_6191391356536668303_o

Boating on Kootenay Lake – New Painting

Occasionally we just need a break! I took a little reprieve from my large commission piece this week/weekend. I find that sometimes a small rest away from a piece can give me time to think, plan and then feel refreshed when I return to it again.

In the meantime I picked up a small 11″ x 14″ canvas I had and had fun revisiting this scene that I sketched a couple months ago. The drawing and the painting are inspired by my friend, Cheryl Jagger’s photo of a scene from Kootenay Lake. I love this lake, it is one of the reasons we live where we do!  BoatingOnKootenayLake_CollageIMG_9769

Hmmm… now what would have been even more of a restful than painting this would have been to actually head out to the lake mug in hand! 😉
