Lake Huron From the Deck

10" X 8" Oil On Canvas

Simplicity. I am trying to find simplicity in my life and my work. I have finally cleared my cluttered life enough to slip a painting in! I haven't painted for over a year now and it really effected my balance. I thought this would be a great first painting.

The painting is a view of Lake Huron from the back deck at the house of my friend who lives in Pinconning Michigan. Yes, the home of Pinconning cheese! A girls weekend is held there at least once a year and we bask in the views, dine on wonderful cheese while enjoying a cocktail or two or three or....

This represents the simplicity, peace and tranquility I hope I can find in my life.
