Freedom at Egg Harbor

Freedom at Egg Harbor
Oil on panel, 12x9
Door County, Wisconsin
This morning found me at Egg Harbor, Wisconsin at water's edge. As I arrived on sight, I saw this boat immediately resting in the bay, basking in the morning light.  I had to paint it.  I set up my easel immediately, without even scouting out the rest of the area.  The wind was strong in my face, and I was only a couple of feet from the edge of the dock - but this scene was worth the extra effort!  Before long, the dingy was missing, and the owner of the boat and his friend came to see what I was painting.  After a wonderful visit with these interesting men, this painting has found a new home.  What a wonderful painting day this was surrounded by such beauty!  This is painting number 568 in 568 days.
