Morning at the Big Lake
Last summer I found this spot at the end of Esch Road in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I did a small plein air painting in about an hour-and-a-half. This is a slightly different angle piece I just completed in the studio. The big dune on the right is Empire Bluffs. In the distance is South Manitou Island. It was a beautiful morning. I only saw four people in the couple of hours I was there. About a three mile long, completely natural beach. I'll go back this summer.
