The Lake (48x60")

Finally finished the beast...this is the largest oil painting I've done to date at 48x60". I've painted some larger murals but the focus on this level of finish was much more intense for me. I really enjoyed the experience of this scale and I'm looking forward to doing another and maybe something obscenely larger in the future. That would be great fun. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I painted a smaller version (18x24") of this painting titled "The Lake", but always felt that shallow water in the foreground needed to be almost life size.

I ordered a frame for this and hope to have it in my studio by next week, then I'll carefully package it and ship it off to Gallery 51 in Meredith, NH for a solo show I'm having there at the end of the month. This will be my first official notice for the opening, here are the details:

Thank you Deb. Wish you could come to the show. I must tell you that working on this scale is really addictive. Time consuming but addictive.
All my best to you,
