View Across Lake Monomanoc, New Hampshire (no.74)

8"x8"x1", oil on masonite

SOLD

A very straightforward portrait of a beautiful summer day spent on Lake Monomanoc in New Hampshire.  In the back of my mind I am always searching for the perfect cloud formations for my taste, which are usually puffy cumulus clouds with a strong form that have high contrast bursts of white light in them, to paint from.  While sitting in the living room of the lake house I saw these and ran outside to capture them before they dissipated.  I have always been fascinated by these random masses of water vapor that can, for some reason, be so incredibly beautiful and moving to us humans.

I know this one's a little out of season (in my opinion at least) but I loved the image and that's all that matters right?  Right.  This comes from a couple of photos I took at a friends lake house in New Hampshire on the 4th of July, which I thought I might have exhausted all possibilities for paintings from last year but I was wrong.  The pine needles were tough as they just beg to be painted needle by needle.  After roughly painting the general forms of the branches they wouldn't look crisp enough to register as pine branches so I'd fall into a trance of painting needles until I had to stop myself and blur it all out again.  The push and pull between specific detail and general strokes is an important and difficult part of painting (to me) in these pieces as well as my larger conceptual pieces in which I aim to paint far more abstractly but with areas of focus.

Sorry about the long rest period, I was completely without painting panels after White Kousa Dogwood and had to put together my table saw before I could make any more...
