This painting projects romance and mystery. Who boats are those? What are they talking about. Are they in the Gazebo?
Boating around over the years on Pelican Lake , I have taken pictures several times of this gazebo. Then last summer, I spotted the two Adirondack chairs high on top of the cliff overlooking the lake. What a fun place that must be to sit out and visit with a favorite person. Ideas came to life in my head generating several sketches. First I considered creating a diptych (set of two paintings) one with the gazebo and other with the two chairs. Next an idea of adding 2 white boats sided by side was clouded with indecision of whether they were better with the gazebo or the chairs. Finally I redrew my sketch and put all three items together inviting the viewer’s imagination to finish the story. It was so much fun to paint! I hope you love it!
