It's quiet and peaceful during the week and busy on the weekends when the boats loaded with tourists come to visit. I have a room in the back of our house loaded with extra canvas and paints and enjoy painting from the 'island house' whenever we stay for an extended time. This year, I'll be here for a month and plan to create a few paintings inspired, in part, by the island imagery and mood. I'll also be creating new jewelry using genuine sea glass collected from the lake shore. (An example of an earlier piece.)
The first of the new paintings is "Beyond the Sun, Sand and Sea" - Triptych painting. Minimum dimension 20x30, but the overall width can vary depending on how far about the panels are placed. This piece is inspired by the beautiful horizon, sky and shoreline. Although not from an actual island image (as the shoreline is much more white here), it is meant to capture the gentle mood and feeling one experiences when looking out on the sea and the warm glow of the sun along the horizon.
