On weekends, this lake is a popular destination for hikers, mountain bikers, fishermen, and picnicking families. But on weekdays, the lake and the land are returned to the creatures that live here. Turtles climb onto the logs, salamanders and snakes can safely cross the paths, and the only ones doing the fishing are the great blue heron‘s and snowy egrets. Herds of deer can be seen grazing on the hillsides. My aim with this painting was to capture the peacefulness I not only saw, but felt as I witnessed the grandeur and beauty of it all.
Though the original is in pastels, the fine art giclee reproduction is done on the highest quality satin finish canvas, and therefore retaining the brilliance of the original pastels, but also looking very much like an oil painting. You have your choice of sizes.
