Dawn on Percy Lake
This is a 14 in. x 10 in. pastel of a body of water called Percy Lake, Manitoba. My artist friend Jan Layh has a cottage and we have spent many memorable times there. The little lake has spawned many paintings. My wife took up painting while we were there for are anniversary, I think she figured that if she couldn't beat us she may as well join us and she went on to produce a very nice little painting that always brings back fond memories. That is the thing about painting on location, the place is embedded in your memory in more ways than one.
