My children and I spent some time camping at Lake Mineral Wells in the summer. We rented one of the small screened cabins right on the water for the weekend.  All along the lake are paths carved from the boulders and rock formations along with benches and platforms along the water to enjoy the view.  This painting is the view we had right across from our cabin.  I did a series of small paintings of Lake Mineral Wells along with a few larger canvases.  This is one of the handful of paintings from the lake left.  It's time to find this painting a new home!   It's a beautiful and inspiring place and I'm hoping to get back there soon.  


  1. Beautiful simplification and wonderful rather unexpected color harmonies.
