Frozen Lake 1-4

The cold weather is here and I am breaking the ice off of the horse trough with our high for the day going up to a balmy 22F (-5.6C), but the bright side is that the sun is shining.

I thought today I would take the dog with me and go to the Selwyn Beach Conservation Area and do a couple of sketches of the frozen lake while walking along the beach and on the trails.

Once we arrived at the park She-Ra stayed close beside me, normally she would be rushing ahead of me and wait until I caught up with her before racing of again. But I have to keep remembering that she is thirteen years old and starting to slow down.

I stopped and did my first drawing at the end of the first trail which led down to the beach and you could see the edge of Chemong Lake through the trees. From there I continued along the second trail which ran along side of the lake and stopped again to do another drawing.

I kept an eye on She-Ra, making sure she didn't go too far out on the frozen lake because the last thing I wanted was for her to find a thin spot in the ice and go through it into the lake. After I finished my third drawing I decided it was time to head back.

Just before we came to the trail which took us back to the parking lot, I stopped and did my last drawing of the lake before heading home.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork.
