Clouds Over Maumee Bay

Clouds Over Maumee Bay
Oil on panel, 6x6
Maumee Bay, Ohio
Each summer, my family vacations near Lake Erie, meeting my brother and his family as we join with our parents.  We love to go to the beaches around Lake Erie, swimming, riding the jet skis, and the kids burying each other in the sand!  On one of those afternoons, this beautiful cloud bank pushed in from the south, and I was able to snap a few photos.  The rhythmic sound of the waves and soaking in the sun with nothing to do - is so relaxing!  Perhaps next year, I will take my paints and capture Lake Erie's beauty en plein air.  Only my second cloud painting all year, this is painting number 308 in as many days.  Now back to yard work!
