Used sketches from a couple years ago to create these paintings. Did the small one first. Wanted to go larger but felt that the 16 x 12 would be large enough. This scene is another design from travels in Door County. Baileys Harbor is across the bay.

Time for Repairs; Oil on Gessoed Paper 6″ x 8″

Working on a large painting this day. Mid-afternoon I was getting a bit fatigued. Decided to halt work on the large painting for fear of making it “stiff” and overworked. I rifled through some photos and found one of Hickey’s Brothers Fishery in Door County. The photo captured the building, traps and boat. I felt that the scene could be a bit more exciting with the addition of the figure. Small painting but worked to my satisfaction.
