A studio piece

Working from sketches and photos from my spring trip up north, I recently finished this in the studio. It's nice to make time to work larger and I enjoy working with non-standard proportions. To me the shape of the canvas should fit the subject, not the other way around. This will be in the Glen Arbor Art Association’s upcoming member show.

Oval Beach

A few weeks ago I had the chance to spend a couple of hours at Oval Beach In Saugatuk, MI. A beautiful place for a swim on a hot afternoon. Wish I'd brought my swimming suit along with my paints. But I found a shady spot under a tree with a view.
