This piece (16x20") is from my recent road trip out to Door County WI. I painted this while on the front porch of the Inn I was staying at. The heat was something that I wont soon forget and this particular afternoon the shade on the porch seemed like a nice place to get a painting in.
So at the dock side quick paint in Door County (my main reason for driving 2900 miles) I had decided before leaving Maine, that a 24x30" piece was the kind of excitement and challenge I wanted to set for myself. Go big and then go home was my motto. Ha! Anyway, the piece turned out, not so great and I did not win the invite back next year. I know, bummer for sure. The good news is I met a ton of great people and a handful I am sure I will keep in touch with for a very long time. I even got a few paintings that are heading for frames and hopefully an invite back for just being the guy who went for it and wants it the most. I will show some more of the paintings in the near future. Thank you Door County had a blast!
