I have recently done a series of theme paintings, this is the first. Painted in oil on a 16x20 inch flat canvas panel. I miss my Lake, in the winter it looks like a frozen tundra, beautiful and silent. No pounding or gentle surf, no seagulls. Just a bitter cold wind blowing in from Canada, waves frozen and ice dunes as far as you can see.
Abstract Impressionist? All pallet knife, it felt loose and fresh to me, no hovering over questionable brush strokes. A good time.
