TM8369 Still Listening 16×16 oil on panel

There are certain places that (quietly) call out to be painted again and again.  This rocky point leading into a lake is one of those places. I love the sense of distance and intimacy.  I love the “moderateness” of the place – no extremes of activity or geology, but a good place for listening and thinking. A quiet retreat.  A previous painting titled “Listening for Loons” featured the same point. This time, I used a cooler palette but kept the almost spiritual quiet so specific to the locale.  And of course I added the water lilies of late summer. Enjoy!
