A perfect day to paint last Saturday in Douglas/Saugatuck, Michigan—two small, quaint, and artsy towns just separated by the Kalamazoo river three hours from Chicago. Water Street Gallery hosted this one-day event and reception. With the morning light hitting it, I chose the Summertime Market to paint first. And I stood in the front yard of another gallery to do it (the Button-Petter Gallery which is having a great show of Ken Cadwallader paintings right now). The evening reception was in a nice, park-like area behind the gallery and the painting sold.
