The Pump House


I just turned in a collection of Plein Air paintings to the gallery from this summer. It is called "Cottages of Door County".

This was the fourth annual Door County Plein Air Festival ... one of the largest plein air paint-outs of the Midwest region. The beauty of this area is diverse and inspirational. It is such a unique area.... Wisconsin's best kept secrete. It is the "Cape Cod" of the Midwest. This is the 3rd year in a row that I have attended with a couple of artist friends. It was an another fun packed week.

We had a variety of weather.... sunny, cloudy and rain.... but we painted our hearts out!!!!

I am posting 6 paintings.... one each evening... from some of the many paintings from my week in Door.

This was from the first morning. We drove to the Lighthouse located in Canna Island. This is one of the small buildings located on the Island. It was the Pump House. I set up under the shade of an old oak tree... and enjoyed the morning... without a care in the world!
