Painting Hume Lake

For years I’ve been hearing about the beauty of Hume Lake, a Christian Camp in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We have many friends who visit every summer and I was commissioned to paint the view of the lake and the mountains earlier this year. Wewere finally able to drive up and explore Hume ourselves this week and I had a wonderful time painting the ever changing landscape.

Here are three of the five studies I completed in the three days we were there. I’ll be working on another Hume Lake commission in the coming weeks. What a privilege to capture the beauty of creation in a place steeped in meaning for so many.
