This is a painting made at another of my favorite places for taking a walk. It's a view looking south east from a trail near the lake. I made a similar painting last year, but in 5" x 7" size - the very first painting from a new pochade box I made for that size. This time I brought my 9" x 12" pochade box. The weather on this day was sunny as opposed to the rainy weather I painted in for last year's little version. This spot will likely become one of those places I return to again and again for paintings. The different seasons and weather offer a variety of images and moods that will likely attract my attention for a long time to come.
