Part I, the Present, shows the diverse beauty of Lake Waramaug in its four seasons as seen in thirty-five paintings of the same scene executed under different conditions over two years. Each painting tells its own story. Selected observations made in the artist’s log book during the painting process accompany each of these paintings.
Part II, the Past, is a fascinating long-view of the Lake’s history from the Lake’s probable beginning eons ago, through the Ice Ages that sculpted the Lake, the Five Mass Extinctions and, finally, to the return of flora and fauna and the arrival of humans. Although Lake Waramaug is the special place we have come to know and love, the threat of the Sixth Extinction looms.
