"Hey...you paint that?"


"You know who's boat that is?"

"No, but I like that boat."

"I think it's Phil Laney's.  It's a 60's Century, ya know?"

"Oh, really?"

"Yeah...you didn't get the windshield right."

oil on canvas
8" x 10"

One of my favorites from the weekend.  Evidently, weekend warriors habitually tow buoys around the lake and leave them at whatever pier has the biggest party.  Party on you pontoon plunderers.

Lake Wawasee
oil on canvas
10" x 17"

I've painted this four times now. I like the way this type of picture works...or doesn't work.  It's all about that little red dot, isn't it?

Wah-Wah...You've Given Me a Wah-Wah

Lake Life
oil on canvas
12" x 36"

I spent the past few days painting at Lake Wawasee in northern Indiana.  It's a great place to spend a weekend, especially if you've got some friends to dip your toes with.  Thanks to my good pals Bill, Lisa, Audrey, and Courtney, our time at the lake was exceptionally comfortable.  And thanks to IPAPA and the Rapp family, most of my paintings didn't come home with me.  

I'll share my lake pictures over the next few days as I set sails for eastern winds...I hear the snow has melted and the road has opened.

As for the scene above, it's a quintessential Lake Wawasee scene and the first of three pictures featuring one of my favorite nautical subjects...the brightly colored buoy.

Spanish Boots of Spanish Leather

I'm looking forward to breaking out my sailboat this weekend at Lake Wawasee.  I may even paint a picture or two.

So, if you need something to remember me by to make your time more easy passin', take heed of western winds and meet me at the South Shore Golf Club on Sunday, June 15 from 1-3pm...I'll be showing my pictures there.

I don't have a sailboat.

The Impressionist Depression Gist

Dead End Stop

I really need to stop entering these juried shows...my online application page looks like a murder scene.
