"MacArthur's Shore", plein air oil landscape painting, Sharon Lynn Williams

"MacArthur's Shore", plein air oil painting on board, 9 x 12"
$575 framed in a dark plein air frame or in a wood frame with a linen liner, FREE S&H

This is the last painting I did at O'Hara, and also my favorite. I love Lake MacArthur, the largest lake in the O'Hara area, backed by a neat glacier, although it is a bit of a slog to get there as it is quite high up. The water is the deepest turquoise colour I have ever seen, but it is moody as the colour changes with the weather. We had an amazing 4 days there, with no clouds during the day, which made it much easier to paint as there were no cloud shadows to obscure the forms. I will post the rest of the paintings I did there in the next several days.

I want to say thank you to all of you who came over to view my blog at the suggestion of Carol Marine. You comments were very kind and encouraging. I hope you will stick around for more.

Enjoy!

Thank you. Your paintings are the inspiration that was needed to complete the work for the upcoming show. I was half way through painting the 25 paintings for the gallery when my brain went dead. Carol pointed to your blog site and the work has started again. Thank you
