Painted in October, 2011 at Bluff Head, Huletts Landing,
this is a view of Lake George that I adore and have
painted many times. In order not to have my canvas
blown away by the wind that late afternoon, I had
to use bungee cords attached to my car.

Change is inevitable. Saying goodby to loved ones,
locations, objects — it is all a struggle that I am
trying to accept with some grace.
