The First Dance

 Josh and Jordan, I hope that you enjoy this portrait of "The First Dance" as Mr. and Mrs. Raynor. You had a beautiful wedding and your reception was a lovely magical night full of celebrating the beginning of your new journey together.  When I saw the two of you dancing, I knew right then what I wanted to do for the two of you.  May your life together be filled with beautiful colors.

Wam Squam

So why has it been almost three months since my last post? I've been at my trusty easel working on commissions, hopefully soon I'll be caught up and will post them.  Here's one painting that I finished just last week, and oh it brings so many memories.  The Wam Squam was quite the hot spot for our little White Lake community and for the seasonal tourists.  I feel like it helped bring up my boys, I would stop there many times for breakfast and gas before going to school, we loved their sausage and ham biscuits!
The Wam Squam, which means "white water" was a major White Lake landmark, I can't remember how many times I gavc directions and used "turn right at the Wam Squam". A wonderful place to catch up on the latest gossip and get ice cream and candy.
Oh Wam Squam I miss you, you will always have a place in my heart!
