Placid Lake Triptych

"Placid Lake Triptych" 90"w x 40"h, Sivertson Gallery, Grand Marais, MN
Today's piece is titled Placid Lake Triptych and is available at Sivertson Gallery in Grand Marais, MN. This painting is the largest I've ever attempted at 90"w x 40"h. I worked on this painting over a two week period and I've excited to share it and so happy it's finished all at the same time. :) I've been working in a recent compositional theme of birches in the foreground, and smaller birches across a lake, with the two blues of the skies and waters complementing the warm golds of the birches. I found myself staring at this painting quite a bit as it was nearing completion, feeling the effect of the thousands of brushstrokes and wondering at what it all means ... so I looked up placid in the dictionary and in closing, I'll share some meanings of this word with you ...

calm and peaceful, with little movement or activity.
"the placid waters of a small lake"
synonyms:quiet, calm, tranquil, still, peaceful, undisturbed, restful, sleepy
"a placid village"
