Wow! I love this! I have a reference photo of a very similar scene at our lakehouse but I know I couldn't do the painting as well as this! Great job with the colors!

Karen, once again, love the colors and brush strokes. You have a wonderful style. Thanks so much for your comment on my Cape Cod painting. Coming from you, it means a lot to me.

Thanks for painting my exact location.
Two weeks by the lake and enjoying every
minute.

You have a special talent for incorporating
colors and brushstrokes. Beauty!

Can I sit in this chair? It looks so inviting. Lovely painting.

Wish I could just crawl into your painting- plant my butt on that Adirondak chair and enjoy the view and the breeze from the lake. {{{{sigh}}}} Great painting, Karen!

You've managed to create a painting that is both wildly exciting and blissfully relaxing all at once. Wow ... just ... wow!

Hi Karen,

I sat staring at this one loving how you painted everything from the water to the chair, to...just everything. You are a constant inspiration.

Such a beautiful inviting scene of a blue Adirondack chair. It looks like fall with the complimentary orange colors scattered around it. Nice work!

Beautiful painting with lots of energy. Love your brushstrokes and colors.

The little patches of color like mosaic is very effective. This is a plain subject with a lot of life because of the shimmering jewel colors.

Nancy Everett said...

I love this! You made a simple subject so exciting!

I see why this has 20 comments! Was a fabulous painting that elicits such appreciation and longing from the viewer. Wish I was there. Love your colors, brush strokes and the overall mood. Perfect in August. It's over 100 in Austin - again.
