Shades of Summer Art Show and Art @ the Locks Show

The high heat 87F (30.6C) and humidity 100F (37.8C) will continue to increase until the middle of the week when we are to get a break for a day or two before it returns.

This is another of the sketches I did last month while we were out canoeing on Lovesick Lake.

It is a scene from Beaver Island where the cabin that had once been on the property had burnt to the ground with nothing to indicate it had ever existed other than the trees which had surrounded it were charred more than halfway up their trunks and the lack of any form of vegetation within the area.

What was interesting was that the outhouse remained untouched further back in among the trees and that this part of the deck with a barbecue, a couple of chairs and a few small wooden tables sat exposed to the elements.

I will post this sketch at a later date once I have completed the drawing.

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.

Traffic was fairly steady at Lockside both with foot traffic and from people off the boats going through the Lock, although the temperatures did keep the numbers down from last year.

With it being the last day of the show we took everything down in the evening.

Up in Buckhorn three paintings were sold by Ron Desjardine and one sculpture and pottery was sold by JoAnne Connell Northey. Small items were purchased from Diane Collins and Penny Little.

Hopefully some of you will make it out to see the show.
