Still Water at Rock Cut Overflow – Plein Air – Oil on Canvas Panel – 8 x 10

Found a quiet spot along the banks of the lake at Rock Cut. About an hour into the painting, I startled a fisherman. The fellow wandered from the parking lot, down the lane to the edge of the lake, about ten yards from where I was painting (I was tucked into the edge of a clump of trees). He began to cast his line into the lake. About the third cast, he let out a bit of a shriek as he finally noticed that I was there. We both laughed, shared a few comments, and went back to our tasks. After about ten minutes, they fellow decided to try his luck elsewhere on the lake.
