The New Work, "Summer Days 2"

2012, oil on linen, 36”x 24”.

For sometime I’ve been looking for a background scene which has a vivid blue lake amidst dark trees.  I finally found almost exactly what I had in mind at Jackson Meadows reservoir.  Although nothing beats the majestic view of Lake Tahoe (at least around in my neck of the woods), Jackson Meadows was quite attractive.

I don’t mind if the pine cone staff was interpreted as a fertility symbol; I just enjoyed the message it implied.
