Mountain Lake Shadows
Painting - Oil Pastel On Paper
Mountain Lake Evening is from a series I did of the Mountain Lake resort in Giles County, VA. This was the setting for the movie, "Dirty Dancing"which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. I am especially pleased with the evening colored light that makes for beautiful patterns in the main Gazebo of this resort. I used to swim in the lake with friends from college. Mountain Lake is a natural lake and has been draining for some time. This drawing was begun many years ago when the water level was up and finished a few years ago. The trails are great for hiking and this is one of many areas in Southwest Virginia where my husband, Clyde Kessler, researches birds and butterflies. We have stayed at the resort several times with our son. I hope to go back soon. I never tire of working from scenes in this beautiful mountain region. The painting is framed in a white mat.
My paintings have been seen throughout the United States in national, international, and group shows. I have won numerous awards, including awards from Dorothy Gillespie, May Stevens, Frank Webb, and Daniel Greene. My best-selling print, "Reaching Out", was selected from over three million works of art on Fine Art America to be on the set of The Mindy Project and I will be appearing with my artwork on The Hour of Joy on FoxTV out of Roanoke on March 10th 2013. I live to paint and it is important to me to find homes for all of my creations. I have originals and prints in twenty-one states, Canada, Germany, and Australia. I want to cover the world with my art.
