"This view changes every hour," she said, referring to the vista of Lake Champlain out her back window. "I've painted it maybe 300 times, and each one is different."
Today, at 75 years of age, Reynolds admits she's slowing down somewhat, but hopes to continue painting as long as she can.
"I just want to be able to put two feet on the ground when I get up in the morning," she said. "It's nice that I can just enjoy being leisurely when I need to."
Reynolds has made it a point to open her studio each summer, but illness prevented her from doing a show last year. This year, more than 100 of her paintings, both new and old, framed and unframed, will be on display to celebrate the 40th anniversary of her studio.
An opening reception for the show is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 8, from noon to 5 p.m. The studio is located at 828 Point Road. All are welcome to attend.
Other viewings are also available by appointment by calling Reynolds at 963-8356.
