Island on Redstone

Island on Redstone
18" x 20" - acrylic on canvas - $300
I have tried to paint this particular view of a small island - it is just trees and some rocks - near my cottage on Redstone Lake in Haliburton, several times. This time, however, I am quite happy with the result. I think the very stylized forms and expressive palette 'work' - and are more interesting than the reality: green trees on a grey lake, with a grey sky and grey-green background hills.
Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!
