You may or may not know.

You may or may not know that I paint lakes, rivers, and bay decor maps for folks to hang in their lake house, home, office or business. Normally they are 10"x20" and occasionally larger. Currently, I am working on a huge 4'x8' decor map of Pickwick Lake that's located in Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Below is a 2'x3' sample and the 4x8 map which is being printed. As soon as it's finished, I will place a picture of it on the blog.   

I love painting these maps and know what it means when they say "if you do what you enjoy, then you will never work a day in your life!" I call the maps "The Great Recession Maps" because I started painting them during the recession. The first was of a river that's close to my heart, a river that our family has a lot of history living near, which is another story for another time. I wanted a nice decor map of this river to bring back those golden memories, so I painted my own. Folks liked it so well, I painted more and made prints. That was 200 decor maps ago. www.LeoLakes.com

Remember to get away from the big screen and get on a big stream. 


  1. I did craft shows for many years and it always amazes me when someone comes up with something different. I also amazed at the talent people have. This one is a good one.
