On the third day of this plein air adventure I’m on, I went down to Bay Point at sunrise to start a new painting.

On the walk to set up, the sweetest big dog greeted me. I’ve been missing my dog, and having this girl wag her tail and lean against me was so nice!

Then while I painted, a number of people came by to check my progress a few times. It was such a joyful place to paint.

I was drawn to this boat, and worked on the painting for a couple hours before the early morning light changed into a midmorning light (and then came back first thing the next morning to finish it).

And then, with the mid-morning light, I moved over to work on the boathouses below.
