Lake Series

I am fortunate to always spend part of the summer at our family home on a lake in New York State. The idea for these paintings came late one night when I was sitting on the dock, looking across the water at the distant shoreline. It was a beautiful night, dark and calm, serene. I was transfixed. I loved the way the image in the night gave itself up so slowly. The basic elements of sky, land, water, and reflection came together as a perfect contemplative subject. These paintings are not so much about specificity of place, but are evocations --- they're tonal meditations on a landscape I have known all my life.
