Lake Solace original oil painting by Coleen Hester

This is an original oil painting done "plein air" which means it was painted on location in the natural light. I was recently visiting Lake Lure North Carolina and got up early in the morning before it got hot and found this sweet spot to paint the reflections on the lake before the wind picked up and the boats came out to disturb the water. I love living in the mountains and having the opportunity to capture this beautiful scene. The painting measures 10 x 20 inches and is painted with oils on a linen canvas panel. It is framed in a beautiful custom frame with a silvery/gold lip and ready to hang in your home or office.
