I like to go out in the canoe at my parents' cabin on the lake. It's great fun to try to quietly sneak up on the turtles sunning themselves on the rocks. This guy is catching the last rays of the sun on a hot summer evening. The golden light and buzzing dragonflies make it seem like a magical midsummer evening. You know the fairies can't be far away.
This painting is one of 14 of my original watercolors currently on display at Matthew Robert Salon in Edmonds, WA through June 8, 2020. The exhibit is open to the public during business hours and all paintings are available for purchase.
