Madison is right in the heart of Georgia’s “Lake Country”. Lakes like Sinclair, Oconee, and Lanier being so close, make it easy to take a little weekend getaway to get your toes in the water for a bit of relaxation, excitement, and recreation.
The waters and shores of Georgia’s lakes are filled with fishing holes, lazy lagoons for houseboats, and expanses of open water for skiing, tubing, and the likes.
This painting by Chris captures a snapshot of the respite and tranquility that a trip to the lake can offer. I would venture to say that, short of loading up the family and driving 4+ hours to the Atlantic, a getaway to the lake is the perfect way for those who believe in the healing and therapeutic powers of sitting in the sun by a large body of water to reap the healing benefits.
As I look at this painting, I can almost hear the wakes and breeze-driven waves lapping against the shoreline, and feel the sunshine hitting my face. It’s safe to say that I have the itch to find a large body of H2O and park myself for an extended period of time.
I love how Chris’ paintings can transform his viewers to a particular place in time. There’s something special about an artist that can accomplish that with his brushstrokes.
