This is a picture that I painted in acrylics when we camped in a cottage on Owasco Lake, NY one October. We had the whole array of seasonal changes while there from Indian Summer when we went boating with friends to snow falling in big, big flakes and covering the deck!
It was a time of rest and renewal for us as well as visiting friends and family from there on the lake. Bill is in the boat and fishing for that one big whopper! I took time to read, paint, draw, take pictures and even weeded and planted fresh Mums on the little terraced bank behind the cottage!
Remembrances include a Bonn fire on the beach with our son and family, kayaking, walking, seeing deer every day, having family over, lots of fires in the fireplace and waking to 50's temps inside. We loved every precious moment that we spent that October and made memories to last a lifetime.
I just put the finishing touches on this painting and hung it in our kitchen so we may see it all the time. It is one of my more primitive paintings but I succeeded in capturing the moment....
