Lake Oconee House

Pin It
"Lake Oconee House"
Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel.
Not for sale.
We had a great day at the lake with our 25 family members. I had an early morning painting class with two of my nieces and a nephew. They really enjoyed painting with the "mini pie cutters" (aka palette knives) and I am so proud of their paintings which are all posted below. The lake house, owned by my oldest brother and his family, is the feature of my painting above.

"Hot and Cold", 6" x 6" on canvas panel by John, age 13.
"Sailing in the Sunset:, Oil, 6" x 6" on canvas panel by Erin, age 11.

"Catch of the Day", Oil 6" x 6" on canvas panel by Lindsay, age 8.

That's a beautiful little trio. Looks like maybe you should do that every year and start a gallery at the lake house. And I love yours--that will bring up good memories for years to come!

Such wonderful family time! The kids paintings are great, they really got into your mini pie cutters, and it looks like everyone in your family loves color. They will remember this always.
