Grand Marais Plein Air Painting Competition

I enjoyed painting up in Grand Marais, MN this week.  The little tombolo on the lake walk portion of the Superior Hiking Trail is now an island because of the higher lake water levels.  I had to use a little artistic license to include the full moon in my Night Paint (it sets quite a bit further south over the Sawtooth Mts.).  The painting of the lighthouse was part of the Quick Paint event .  The painting had to be completed in 90 minutes.  The stylized view of Lake Superior was done looking out the motel window on a rainy day.
