This is one of the paintings I did during the Grand Marais Plein Air Paint Out a couple weeks ago. We concentrated on the southern end of Cook County this year (or western end if you're from Cook County).
Painted in mid-July, I finally photographed it today. This is another early morning painting from one of my favorite regional parks. At this time in the morning, everything is precious. I don't have to look very hard for subject matter and find myself awed by the simplest of things—a tree, some clouds, ablaze of grass.
Yes it is rapids on the Rapids River. I couldn't resist the title.
I'm playing catch-up before the Saint Paul Art Crawl, Oct 4-6. In the past month we've taken 3 trips to paint. Unfortunately you wouldn't know it because I haven't had any time to post any of the work. Watch for a glut of new work here and on my web site.
