Farewell Photo

I had fun getting this photo before bubble and plastic wrapping these paintings for the CAS "Surf's Up" show at Cypress Grill.
I guess I really like water and sunsets.

"Sunset Over Lake Michigan"

Acrylic on canvas 9x12 It's amazing how good this looks sitting in a frame. I had bought the frame for a silly still life and am so grateful that I never framed it because it just makes this painting. See it for yourself at the "Surf's Up" Creative Arts Society show, Cypress Grill on Wm. Cannon west of MoPac, July 26-September 27.

"Sunset Over Lake Michigan"

"Sunset Over Lake Michigan" acrylic on canvas 9x12

I was attending this sunset a week ago with my oldest girlfriends: Patti, Lynda and Lucy, in St. Joseph, Michigan.

There's a wonderful lookout point, with multiple decks, but this view was off to the side where the fence was hanging loose. It spoke to me more than the magazine type shots I got from the top deck.

I'm nearly finished and just wanted to share my joy at finally painting something at home. It's been nearly a month and my paints had gotten fuzzy! I've been sketching and painting, but that was at the beach and at painting class. This piece I did just for me...and the CAS show at Cypress Grill the end of this month. "Surf's Up" is the theme, so my palm trees, sunset boats and this one are going in it.

I've got a million paintings in my head. Time to start sketching.
