June Sails, Juniper Island

When I engage with Lake Champlain's waters, sky, and shoreline, I often feel, all at once, both a deep inner calm and a vibrant sense of energy. My intent in this painting was to express these sensations: the wide and deep spaciousness of the lakescape; the movement and energy of light on water, wind in sails.
