Yacht Club Boathouse

We have just gotten back from a ten day trip to California, took the red-eye home! I was not able to paint out there, nor post from my new iPod, but hope to work that out next time I go away.
This painting is from the Glen Arbor trip earlier this month. Unfortunately I don't have the original photo of the location or the painting Ceci did there, but hope to add it later. 8" x 10" oil on mounted paper, framed, $150.

Pierce Stocking National Park

Pierce Stocking is a fabulous park, this is at the "Dune Overlook" sites. We came back here to paint for the "Paint-Out" on Saturday. Ceci and I painted together on this lovely Thursday. Then that afternoon I started the church painting which I will show later, it is drying and being sent.
That evening Brad's mother Joanne, took us out on her boat for a dinner and sunset. Thank you Joanne! 
My hosts: cousin Jandy and husband Brad, below is Joanne with Pete and fabulous dinner!
That evening's view! This is on Little Glen Lake and it happens every evening . . . lucky them!

Bosch Rd, Michigan

I am showing this painting with the frame so you see how it is finished. This is the first painting Ceci and I did, it is one of many historic farms that are preserved in the area. I wanted to paint at ALL of them, but we ran out of time . . . plus, we had to paint the LAKES! SOLD

 My cousin Ceci from Steamboat Springs, CO who flew into Traverse City at the same time as I did, and we rented a car and drove a total of 464 miles in eight days!

My fabulous time with my cousins, Ceci and Jandy, and Jandy's family near Glen Harbor, Michigan. Here at their Great Lakes Ranch, where they raise Alpacas in a beautiful setting, I got to enjoy 7 days of painting with Ceci. I promise to post the paintings next!

I was lucky enough to have a day to paint there, and finished this yesterday.  16" x 20" oil on canvas, framed $350. SOLD
