Lake House

This painting was done for dear friends.  They have had many happy memories with family and friends through the years at their lake home on Lake Martin.  They have an incredible view of the sunset each afternoon.

This was a new experience for me to paint on burlap.  I applied many coats of Gesso to prepare the surface.  It has a wonderful texture and hopefully lends itself to the lake scene.  My husband took photos for me one afternoon from our gently rocking pontoon boat.  Not the best setup for capturing an image!
