Celebrate

Moon and Stars over the Lake.

Celebration of the 4th – this was painted from a memory of a decade of the 4th celebrations spent by the lake in Galeton, PA. The town has one of the best firework displays every year. We sat on blankets lakeside in the dark and find ourselves dotted with ashes when the show was over. Yes – we were that close. A resounding echo of the booms from the fireworks was softened by the forests. The view was spectacular, ink black mountains posed against the smokey twilit sky, the fireworks extensive and bold, reflected in the dark still water of the cold mountain lake. Wherever you celebrate enjoy the splendor of the summer. To my Banana Factory friends and colleagues have a safe and wonderful holiday under the stars!
