Morning on Schist Lake
I've been spending quite a bit of time lately working on paintings of Schist Lake, Mb, where I had the pleasure of being this past summer. A fellow painter, Ron Watt, took us on a boat trip around the lake one glorious morning and I am eternally grateful for that! My only regret is that we didn't get on the lake a little sooner in the morning so that we could have caught the mist on the water. This painting portrays the last vestiges of that pristine morning (I hope). I'm going to give this one a rest for awhile as I find I am fiddling with it which could mean it is telling me that it is finished or just needs a break from me for awhile.
