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.

Aleksandra, thank you for the kind comments on my works. Sorry for the confusion about who painted this piece, it was not my wife, but me. She was along for the trip and took up painting that weekend.
