Oil on Canvas 36" x 24"
Mr. Preble approached me and asked if I would paint the view that he and his wife enjoy from her family home in Michigan. I always enjoy bringing a special place home for people and as I've been able to get to know the Prebles, Lake Higgins is one of their most treasured and cherished places. The views there seem to wash away all the worries and troubles, giving them a peace and quiet that only a house on a lake can.
Painting this view was a different challenge than I normally face with the strong and obvious foreground framing the piece. The trees create a strong perspective in which the viewer knows they are standing on the shore looking out into a large lake. The added difficulty of capturing the shifting colors under the water closer to shore while also making it feel like a body of water was accomplished by multiple layers of minor details, building them up until there was a sense of depth and deepness.
