It was a balmy 40 degrees, but as usual a gorgeous Tahoe day. I have wanted to paint this boathouse for ages. While it stands on a snowy beach due to the low lake level, I sat in the park where many weddings take place annually. No wonder why with that view! Just as my fingers hit the frozen mark I was done. It may have been coincidence but probably not. Just read an article about painting smaller to capture the essence of a scene and thought that sounded like a good idea. Trying to keep my colors fresher. 8X10 oil on canvas panel.
