“Leland Air” first event of the season

This past weekend I participated in Leland Air in the northwest Michigan, lake town of Leland. A perfect Spring day, sunny, mid-sixties. Just one minor issue: the Spring hatch of midges. Tiny bugs that look kind of like mosquitos, but they don't bite. Swarms of them, mostly close to the lake, caused some distress for a lot of artists. It wasn’t that bad, just had to pick out the ones committing suicide on my painting or palette every few minutes.

A good day. Two paintings, both sold, and I received the People’ Choice award.

Unfortunately, I didn't take time to get good photos before I turned them in.
