Lake Twelve

Lake Twelve, located in the town of Farmington, is of interest to me predominantly because it has a lake. Access to the lakeshore and the water are very appealing to my interest in the night sky. This property provides views of the lake from several vantage points, and gives me the opportunity to make drawings and paintings from the observation of the lake and sky.    

My work is developed on site and from memory. Most onsite work is in the form of drawings and small paintings that are developed from observation. I often make larger paintings from memory. I use the layering of marks or paint to build up an image, giving the image a soft edged, low contrast atmospheric view of the night.
