Vacation, and work.

This painting has been a challenge, but I think it is turning out well. At this point in a painting I generally give it a day and than decide whether it needs some final tweaks.

The painting is based on source photos from Duluth, MN, on Lake Superior. The way I mapped in the original painting design, there was a bit of beach wrapping around to the bottom, and it just wasn’t sitting well with me. Finally, this afternoon, I asked myself whether that beach helped the intention of the painting or not, and it certainly didn’t. A couple hours later the water came all the way down – I stepped back and sighed with relief.

Do you recognize this place?
