Lake House Sunset

As most of you know, we recently purchased a little lake house on Lake Sam Rayburn.  I do a lot of sitting on the back deck watching the sky and water.  On my last visit I brought some 8x10 boards and started painting sunsets.  This one was after a big storm.  The lake went from glass in the morning to surfing waves in the afternoon.  That particular storm had 30-40 mph winds and it was pretty exciting to watch.  After it was all over, the sky lit up in oranges, yellows and magenta.  BTW, this is an oil painting.  It's the first one I've done in over a year!  I'm trying to get used to working with them again.

Ahhhhh, the serenity of this piece appeals to me. I think I can actually feel the mood you were in when you did this.
