Figures in a Landscape

On the Lake
18 x 24
Oil on Canvas


This painting was one of my first "figure in landscape" paintings. I really enjoy painting people within a landscape painting. I think it is interesting that as viewers we immediately relate somehow to a painting. With a landscape painting, one remembers a place or a time that may be similar to the image he or she is viewing. A figure in a landscape is an additional element that invites the viewer to create a story or interpret the emotion of the moment. I would love to continue to do paintings that invite the viewer step into the moment in front of them.
