Two from up north

Had mixed weather on my trip a couple of weeks ago. Got three paintings going, mostly finished, but had to stop for one reason or another so I've just gotten around to some touch-up in the studio. This first one was after the rain let up, on a wet, foggy day. I wish I'd had time to do something larger by the shore to take advantage of the atmosphere. But with the day waning, I was happy with this spot I found up in the hills above Portage Lake. For those who've been there, that's the Portage Point Inn faintly showing in the center across the lake.

This one was done with a little better weather at Lake Michigan.

Sometimes I find mixed/bad weather on a trip is a blessing. It forces me to paint what I might normally avoid.

Yep, you're right. Me too.

Oh, the great lakes... so beautiful. You always do it justice. These make me want to be there.
