Sunset Point- Plein air oil painting ...Marquette, MI


















11"x 14" oil on board (click image to see larger)

Spent several days at our cabin in the Negaunee/
Marquette upper Michigan area, and had to of course
get a bit of painting in. Spent an afternoon before a
threatening thunderstorm getting this one in, along
the western shores of Marquette's Presque Isle Park.

Here's your truly positioned on the edge of one rock
bluff paintin' away!

Looks fantastic, wish I were there with you!

Thanks Jason...

so peaceful...and lifts the mind and spirit above all the dismal news we get hit with all the time. Seeing clouds as they have always been. Water lapping shores as has happened for thousands of years. Something higher than the miseries of modern time.

Painting can anchor our thoughts to reflect and to rest upon certain truths like ultimately Another is in control...

Wish you had been with me too...miss ya!

daaaaaahd
