Church in Lake Placid
About 10 years ago my husband and I took a weekend motorcycle trip, meandering from our home in southern New Hampshire up to Lake Placid New York, over to Plattsburgh and then across Lake Champlain to Burlington Vermont and back home. If not for the rain the last 4 hours, it would have been a perfect weekend. But, the majority of it was absolutely beautiful! While we were in Lake Placid I spotted this church sitting high upon a hill. It was lovely, so I had Kenny stop so I could get a photo of it.
Not long after that I was talking to a good friend about how I didn't really have a "hobby". She and her mom are both artists and so she suggested that I try my hand at oil painting. Willing to give most anything a try, I agreed. She took me to the store to get some basic supplies and told me to find a photograph that inspired me. Immediately, I thought of the beautiful church in Lake Placid New York.
And so it began...
This painting of the church in Lake Placid was my first. It was done in 2008 and I think it took most of the year to complete. The process was fun, frustrating, encouraging and challenging. The cool thing was, I started looking at the world around me. Really looking. At shapes and colors and shadows and light. Since then I've taken lessons and read and studied as much as possible to develop my skill and ability. I still find the process fun, frustrating, encouraging and challenging. And I still love it!
