Hicks Lake is located in Sasquatch Provincial Park, British Columbia. I explored the lake's shoreline over a 3-hour period and concluded that this is a very beautiful location. I came away with many potential artworks. My painting is an exploration of light, shadows, and the contrasting values beneath a surface of water. I wanted to give the water movement and sound but also wanted the viewer to sense the texture of the rock-strewn lake bed and the coolness of the water and air. This coolness was present despite it being a hot summer afternoon. This is one of two paintings I made of Hicks Lake. Working on this painting reminded me of my childhood camping trips with my family at various lakes in British Columbia and Alberta.
