Paintings from the Lake - Keuka Lake with Vineyards

Keuka Lake with Vineyards
8 x 10
Oil on Masonite

Early on, this painting was chosen from the grid.  I had fun framing it and delivering it to its new home last month.  It has really worked for me, as a process, to have "the grid" as a project, to paint these summer studies, knowing that I will be giving them away.  I have learned that it seems strange to others, but to me, it is very motivating and freeing. In this painting, I worked on how to create lots of layers in the landscape, starting with the posts of the vineyards in the foreground to the hills behind the lake in the far distance.
