Rock Island Dusk
Rock Island on Blue Mountain Lake is a wild and lovely little island in the middle of a large, deep, cold lake. I've painted this island more times than I can count, but I still keep going back for photos and plein air. This is from a photo I took a few years ago when we were canoeing the lake at dusk. Thank goodness I had my camera with me at the time, otherwise I would have missed this gorgeous pink sunset on those thirty foot rocks. I think I've mentioned that my grandson goaded me into jumping off that rock at one time and it was hair-raising!
This painting is going to the Adirondack Center for the Arts for sale. They've asked me for a number of pastels to sell this summer and I'm happily obliging! I'm thrilled that they're selling these small pastels.
