Morning on the Lake

morning on the lake by janice trane jones, 11″ x 15″ watercolor w/mat, $150 unframed

On a beautiful May morning as I was putting on my fishing gear and getting ready to launch my float tube into the lake, I turned to the East and saw this brilliant morning view. I made some quick sketches, took a few great photos and then returned to fishing for small rainbow and brook trout. Sometimes you have to experience the moment within the scene rather than paint it. The memories become so much more vibrant and are put to canvas or paper more easily if you can picture in your mind the colors, smells and sounds that were there at that given moment.  (Side Note:  I only caught two trout!) ~ janice
