Portrait of a beloved vacation home

"House on the Lake", oil on canvas, 15" x 30"
This painting was commissioned by Cathy Daniel as a surprise for her mother.  The house is nestled among beech trees on the shore of a scenic lake in Michigan.  Cathy asked me to include herself and her two brothers as children playing on the beach.  It was a joy to paint such a lovely home!


  1. what an amazing gift this painting was!!! My parents have enjoyed it for years and it is already a treasured family heirloom. I can't wait for more paintings from Nancy

  2. It's a great reminder that art is magical!

  3. So true! This painting is like a miniature time machine.
