Shade and Solace

Shade and Solace
Oil on hardboard panel, 10x8
Sister Bay, Wisconsin - purchase here
Arriving early in Sister Bay, I scouted along the main street with the marina on the left.  Spotting this shady spot back quite a way from the road - it simply called out to me.  After getting permission to paint on the property, I set up in the shade of a tree and started to work.  I started the block in after a quick sketch, then began to lay down the real colors, careful with the light and shadow that was so appealing in the morning light. This was such a relaxing place to start the day - and a joy to paint! This painting makes 935 in 935 days.  I am REALLY enjoying Door County, Wisconsin :)
