Painting Lake Pines Northern Michigan near Empire, Michigan

Oil on Canvas
24" x 30" x 3/4"  

Smell the Pines, feel the gentle breeze and sparkling water. This is a bewitching place for any artist to work.
Any painting done at any time of the day seems
to always come out right at this spot. Michigan
is fortunate to be the home of the fabulous
Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore,
the city of Empire, on Lake Michigan. Otter
lake is one inland lake in this area that sports
hiking, fishing, swimming, and being lazy.
This oil painting was part of a series of larger of
works done solely in this park. At the time I
was in my first year of using the new "water
base" oil paints. They are now very popular.
Clean up with water and No turpentine needed
was what drew me to them.
The landscape is sandy pines, sand bottom lake,
gentle breezes, dappled shade and a couple
vintage cottages. Painting here seems as natural
as breathing. Open your easel or paint box,
smell the pine breeze, lay out your paints, smell
the pine breeze, select your scene and the mood
of this spot will put your paintbrush flying.
