Here is a slightly different view of McPhee Lake from the highway that passes by en route to my usual destination of Waskesiu. I love so much about the scene I found last month that I had to paint another version; the straw-like grasses, the dead, spiky trees, the cluster of forest to the left - one dead and "rusty" tree and another silver from moss overtaking it. A bit of a theme of death in this one and yet I don't find it depressing. It's the cycle of life in the forest, beautiful in all its forms.
