Winter Lake

Winter Lake by Candy Prather
16"x20" oil on canvas

The reference for this one came from a dear friend who is a wonderful wildlife photographer that I met at an online art community. We followed each other to Facebook and I am always sneaking over to her beautiful photos, admiring her work. She tells me that these are Tundra Swans (also called Whistling Swans) and they are at Lake Almanor in Northern California. It does get below zero in the winter there.

Thank you Susan for giving me the pleasure to paint one of your amazing works. This was such a refreshing painting to paint in the dead of the Summer heat in Texas at over 100 degree days. Loved it!
