Sullivan Lake Early Morning

5 x 7 inches, oil on board.
I've started painting again but my first effort (after a 3-month hiatus) is very...tentative. Well, it is crap. I'll need some time to get back to wherever I was when I left off.

In the meantime, here's one from '99 I think. I think this was Sullivan Lake in northern Washington. I camped 100 yards from here, and in the morning painted a couple studies.

Poles and Tree, August

5 x 7 inches, oil on gessoed paper.
Here's the last painting I made...from August! A horrible state of affairs, to be sure. Not a particularly interesting study, either. This was the view from the dining room window of our old house.
Oh well...I think I'm on the verge of picking up brushes again. We're more or less settled in our new place and the To Do list is down to one page. Besides, with winter heading in all the outside work is either done, or on hold until next year.
