Painting with Penny

Keuka Lake from Penny's Dock
4 x 6

Today I had fun painting with my friend Penny on her dock. This was my view looking south. It felt good to give her my painting as a gift.

Penny is new to oil painting. She shared her vision for her paintings: a watery, layered, washed look in beautiful subtle colors, with some symbolic elements added. Not completely impressionistic, but not realistic.

I hope that I will soon have as clear an idea of how and what I want to paint. It is uncomfortable being stuck, like I am.
