Made our way over to Sister Bay on a warm afternoon. Upper 80’s but very windy. The wind helped to make for a rather comfortable afternoon of painting. I was able to find a spot where a small structure shielded my easel from the wind. Our dog wasn’t so fortunate. We noticed him constantly shaking his head. We realized that the wind was bothering him. My wife took a chance and draped a small towel over his head, shielding his ears. He seemed to enjoy the headdress and settled down eventually laying down and taking a nap with his head covered by the towel.

Finished the work, packed up the gear and headed over to Husby’s for a take out pizza. Then back out to enjoy another beautiful Door County sunset. Good day.

Helen saw a notice that there was a Zumba class at the Sister Bay city hall at 8:00am. Being the nice guy that I am, I offered to let her go to this class while we were on vacation. Being the artist that I am, I had ulterior motives. The city hall is adjacent to a park, beach and marina. I could paint while Helen attended Zumba.

Tough morning. Overcast and somewhat misty. I quickly found three possible designs. Filtered down to one and put paint to canvas as quickly as possible. Put the finishing details in place as Helen emerged from her class. On to breakfast.
