I had a beautiful weekend at the plein air competition in Marblehead.  Met a lot of talented artists and nice people.  Love Lake Erie.  Decided to get my metal detector out for a while on the beach to search for treasure.  Found about 83 cents.  It wasn’t enough to buy a coffee.

I had a slow start with painting.  There is so much to paint there it is quite overwhelming.  The gingerbread houses are so beautiful, but not so easy to paint.  It took while for my mind to settle in.  By the 3rd painting I was getting comfortable and tired.  I stopped at number 3.  I didn’t win anything at the competition, but sold 2 paintings which is always a plus.

Artists at Put-n-Bay Lake Erie

Carriage House

The weather was wonderful this week at Put-n-Bay.  Artists were invited to come up and paint for the week.  We were wined and dined by the Blue Cottage Gallery of Put -n -Bay.   I had the opportunity to paint a carriage house and it was sold to the owner of Ashley’s Bed and Breakfast.  One of my smaller paintings were auctioned off at the  party at the Gallery.  I met a lot of wonderful people and would suggest to anyone going up to Put-n-Bay for the weekend to stay at Ashley’s Bed and Breakfast for a comfortable time and visit the Blue Cottage Gallery for some creative works of art.

Painted at Whiskey Island Saturday and Sunday.  What a beautiful place.  The weather was beautiful and I painted 3 paintings.  Acrylics don’t work well outside in the weather.
