Day's End - Door County Plein Air

On Wednesday night of the Door County Plein Air Festival, all of the 40 featured artists gathered at the waterfront in Sister Bay to paint the sunset. This was one of the highly publicized events of the week, and crowds of people came out to watch us in action. All were very respectful and encouraging but it was intimidating nonetheless! :) After a full day of rain and drizzle, the sun came out on cue and gave us a beautiful display. 

At the VERY end of this day, a few of us went bowling at the local bowling alley. It was great to pull away mid-week and do something completely different... to just hang out a bit together and socialize. :)

I'm so thrilled for you that you went to Door County! And what a fun group it seems to have been! It's hard to paint with a crowd watching but you did a beautiful job, congratulations!

Laurel, thanks for sharing your report from Door County. It looks like it was a great experience. The sky in "Day's End" is amazing! I love the glow you've captured. OMG-- I remember that bowling alley!!!
