"Sublime Solitude" is part of my solitude series, works from times when alone in wilderness areas a view touched my soul to the point I forgot to breathe. These are the times when I know, without a doubt, that this will become a painting. There is no other choice.
This is Lake Alexandrina in South Canterbury New Zealand. In the winter of 2011 I spent some months in this area painting, exploring and generally emersing myself in the surroundings. I found this lake by accident or was it my inquisitive nature? I was driving up the road on the western shore of Lake Tekapo and saw a small side road. Where there is a road, there I go... and sometimes when there isnt a road too. Lake McGregor greeted me first and then this view of Lake Alexandrina as I peeped beneath some trees and the ducks gathered hopefully at my feet. In the low winter light the lake was breathtaking. Thank you for letting me share those moments with you.
