Mike Burpoe holds a watercolor painting he did of a Party on the Patio at the Waterhole, in front of the Waterhole during the Saranac Lake ArtWalk on Thursday. The band in the painting is “Funk You,” and Funk You played at the Waterhole later that evening. Burpoe painted himself, his family and friends into the crowd, as well as seven people who sent him $20 on social media the night he was painting. He felt this painting shows the “weirdness and welcomingness” of Saranac Lake. (Enterprise photo — Aaron Marbone)
Julia Chambers sells her “Secret Mountain Creations” during the Saranac Lake ArtWalk on Thursday. She “took the leap” and started doing her wood and glass art full-time on Monday. “I was very unhappy with my desk job,” Chambers said. But she added that she’s passed up art opportunities in the past because she didn’t have enough time. Still, she said, “It’s terrifying.” (Enterprise photo — Aaron Marbone)

Christine Dekkers smiles with her artwork during the Saranac Lake ArtWalk on Thursday. Though they look like wood reliefs, Dekkers said these pieces are actually 3-D egg tempera sculptures, a unique blend of egg yolk, plaster and sand which she sculpts to form Adirondack scenes. “I had a dream about it,” Dekkers said of her process, which creates high-contrast darks and lights with gravity.

Amanda Lee shows off her vibrant paintings during the Saranac Lake ArtWalk on Thursday. She said she’s been painting her whole life and was raffling off the painting she was holding. Lee recently started doing foster care. “We were open to having one kiddo and they ended up bringing us a sibling set of three,” she said. “So we’re trying to make renovation to our house.” She said she wanted to support local art instead of just getting wall art from Walmart.
