I had a very busy day yesterday and have another fairly busy day today, so I thought I'd post a picture I painted some time ago. We took a trip to northern Michigan one summer and I was really taken with this little wall. In the picture it looks like it's quite high, but in reality it is only about 2 feet high. I loved that it was made by hand with native rocks, and that the rocks had so many different colors and shapes in them. I also loved the view of the lake in the background. This painting took me quite a long time to do, what with all the details in each stone. The colors in the scan are more intense than the actual colors in the painting - the actual painting is more subdued and subtle. But it's one of my favorite paintings that I've done ... maybe because it brings memories of our wonderful vacation with the boys, and also much of it was painted with a group of artist friends. The group is no more - some moved away, some moved on. But when I see this painting, I remember them all with love.
