I must apologize for the radio-silence of recent months. I’ve been working on a massive commission, and now it is finished. You are the very first to see these pictures. I would have loved to take you on the journey with me as it was happening, but I didn’t dare until I was sure the client was 100% happy with the results.
A restaurateur contacted me in January about executing some art for her lakeside restaurant, The Windlass. She wanted something lake-inspired. I thought scenes based on historic photos of the lake would be interesting, so she put me in touch with a local historian who showed me hundreds of photos of the Lake from the late 19th century to today. The old-timey scenes of the Lake’s Grand Resort Era captured my imagination. I painted eight panels, two per season, to fit into four large dormers in the restaurant. The panels are all about 7’X11′ with sloping top edges. Enclosed are several scenes.
There will be a Reception on Wednesday August 24th 7-10 PM at the Windlass Restaurant, 45 Nolan’s Point Park Rd. Jefferson Township, Lake Hopatcong, NJ 07849. Hope to see you there!
