Lakes are full of secrets and memories which this painting suggests in the darkened shoreline and water depths. I grew up in Minnesota, land of 10,000+ lakes. It was wonderful to always have a lake nearby for swimming, fishing or just sitting on the dock. This is a dock of my imagination, representative of all the days of lakes and beaches and sitting in the sun on a beautiful summer day. This painting is unframed and it has a bit of texture.
Long ago in a galaxy not very far away, I was a talented child drawer. That morphed into a love of painting that I have had most of my life. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I am now doing an ongoing abstract series based on astronomy, a long-time love of mine. I am originally from Minnesota. I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because for me, that's when the magic happens.
