SANDY BEACH, NEWFOUND LAKE, NH WATERCOLOR ORIGINAL PAINTING

 'For I will dream my summer days away
Where on the beach the lazy ripples play
Of that sweet lake unsung and half unknown, —
Pasquaney, 'mid the forest dells alone...

poem by Fred Lewis Pattee

SANDY BEACH, NEWFOUND LAKE, NH watercolor painting from a recent vacation to this beautiful lake.   According to Wikipedia  'The origin of the lake's name is a mystery. An uncertain tradition says that the Native Americans called it "Pasquaney", meaning "the place where birch bark for canoes is found".'  It's a beautiful spring fed lake of crystal clear water and sandy beaches.

"Good Night, Orange Cat" Watercolor Painting

"Good Night, Orange Cat" watercolor painting is from a photo that my daughter gave me of her cat Winnie, all cozy in a soft blanket.  

Cats are rather delicate creatures 
and they are subject to a good many ailments, 
but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
 ~Joseph Wood Krutch
