"Wau-ke-na Pines", oil on panel, 12x12
I painted with the PAAWM group at the Wau-Ke-Na nature preserve easement which was along Lake Michigan. I had hesitated to even drive that far with quite iffy weather forecasted. The gray skies were quite nice though and even though it was muggy when I left the house, the breeze at the Lake was quite cool and I was dressed in shorts! Even so, I did two quick studies and then went up the hill to paint some enchanting meadows that were so beautiful. From these studies I did two pastels that will be in the Button-Petter Gallery Exhibit opening July 11 in Douglas, MI.
