Lake Champlain

Lake Champlain
9 x 12
Oil on Board Plein Air

It has been a long time between posts, but I am now back in Arizona and will be trying to catch up in the coming days. The final leg of our trip was to Isle Lamotte, Vermont on Lake Champlain. We visited with our good friends Dave and Mary Jane who have a lovely home on the island. We stayed for a month and I was able to do some Plein Air work while there, this piece was done from their front deck. The lake level was at a 130 year high and the rocks and trees in the foreground which are underwater is all part of the front yard. Unfortunately many of the Islanders actually lost their homes in the flooding. Dave and Mary Jane were among a few of the fortunate ones. I will post a couple more from the trip in the next few days as well as some new work that I have done here in the studio.
