Mountain Lake Shadows is from a series I did of the Mountain Lake resort in Giles County, VA. This was the setting for the movie, Dirty Dancing which starred Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. I am especially pleased with the evening colored light that makes for beautiful patterns in the main Gazebo of this resort. I used to swim in the lake with friends from college. Mountain Lake is a natural lake and has been draining for some time.
This drawing was begun many years ago when the water level was up. The trails are great for hiking and this is one of many areas in Southwest Virginia where my husband, Clyde Kessler, researches birds and butterflies. We have stayed at the resort several times with our son. I hope to go back soon. I never tire of working from scenes in this beautiful mountain region. The painting is in a white mat.

I enjoyed working with Art and Design students. My Art Appreciation course was hands-on and I received many compliments on my course curriculum.
