A New Painting-- "From Alligator Rock"

I couldn't help wanting to paint this scene from my Charlton Lake holiday last September.  It was an invigorating walk up to the top of the cliff, where we spent time just taking in the fabulous view.  While it was a cloudy, cold day at the time, to me the scene needed to be bathed in sunlight in the morning.  All the hopes of a day on the water are still in the air.  I would be sitting on the end of the long dock, with a cup of tea and a book, legs dangling over the edge.  In the middle of this brutal winter, it's a lovely thought!
