    Setting Sail


    On this particular July afternoon, the weather is perfect! There is a decent breeze, and that has brought the urban sailors out to the waters of the former Lake Calhoun.

    Waiting for the Wind


    The Saturday morning air is heavy with moisture as you sit and watch the sailboats bobbing in the water. The sun is just peeking up over the line of trees giving the sky a glow of orange and pink. Everything is quiet as you enjoy your coffee and ease into the weekend.

    Like so many people, I am longing for the days when we can all travel again. I am happy to share some of my on-location paintings. This painting was done en plein air in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
