Beach on Ellison Bay

On location

Beach on Ellison Bay
Oil on panel, 14x11
Ellison Bay, Wisconsin

My first time to Ellison Bay, this spot grabbed me immediately!  I set up my gear and had this painting half finished in no time.  The wind was kicking up and the surf slapping the beach was musical.  I could paint all day while listening to this music.  The oils laid down easily, and when I finished this, I finished another in watercolor.  I was able to paint 4 paintings today - and have so many reference photos for upcoming paintings when I return home.  What a wonderful place to paint all day long.  If I hadn't packed food, I would never stop to eat!  Funniest thing - so far from home, I met a girl from my Zumba class back in Belton, Missouri!  Isn't it a small world?  Painting number 567 in 567 days - I'm on a plein air adventure in Door County, Wisconsin :)
