This larger piece, for my upcoming show, was painted from the photo above. I only used a few of the boats that were actually there in order to emphasis the peaceful serenity I felt standing on the pier in the early morning at Jackson Lake. That's the great thing about being an artist you can pick and choose which parts you want to keep and those you want to omit. I just love all the quiet mirror reflections on the water. And next, thank you to my friend Leona, my still-life for this week is a couple of very happy young persimmons "Going into the Chapel of Love"... They make such a handsome couple.
