Irvine Lake Boathouse

Irvine Lake in the summer is a bustle of activity.  In the winter it is so serene.  The most activity is a few ducks.  In another month the ducks will practically take over, but for now it is quiet.  I loved the placid feeling as I painted beside the water.  The one lone poplar tree that had not shed it leaves yet was a bright spark of color in an otherwise "green" landscape.  The few paddleboats (barely visible) were also accent colors.
