On our last morning in Grand Marais, I spent some time painting a series of small Plein Air Paintings on our balcony of Lake Superior. I had intended to spend some time doing Plein Air the entire week and it is amazing how time disappears on you when you think you've got a lot of it... that's another thing I'd like to tell a younger self... there's just not as much as you think! Don't you dare be bored!
Anyway, this is the last one I painted, trying to get that faint pink line on the horizon. This is painted on a 6x12 raw wood panel that has been sealed before painting so the pale wood shows through instead of my usual black.
