South Manitou

One of the things I love about painting on Maui is the views of the other islands, calling from the distance to be visited. I found the same this past week in Northwest Michigan. The views from Sleeping Bear Dunes are of North and South Manitou islands. Once logged and farmed, they are now uninhabited parts of the National Lakeshore. Someday I'll get over to them to paint, but for now, I'm happy to be a distant admirer.

I love the hazy distant shore... it does have a pull! Great foreground shadow too!
