VISITORS AT ITALIAN LAKE By Cecelia Lyen

A beautiful spring day at Italian Lake was the serene setting for this past Wednesday paintout. The new swans were quite the attraction for children and adults out for a lazy stroll. My original rendering included 2 additional geese, but I was not happy with the composition. I cropped them out of the photo and will cut the canvas to this smaller size.

Cecelia, this has a very soft look...It's so PRETTY and Dreamy!

Thank you, Sue, but honestly, not as soft -the painting is "delicate" but not as soft as the pic-not really sure why my camera softened the shot.
