Whenever I think of summer, I am reminded of the times our family spent time at the beach together. I have a large extended family so it is always fun to get everyone to come and hang out.
I have just completed this commission for a wonderful local collector who wanted a painting of a vision of her backyard view. Of course, I always put my own style on things. It's called artistic license! I had great fun creating this 18x24 canvas and as I was painting it I was thinking about how beautiful the lake must be in summertime with all of the family around.
