On our trip to Petoskey to attend the reception held for myself and another artist at Somebody’s Gallery, we couldn’t pull ourselves away from this beautiful city; so we decided to extend our stay for an extra night.
On this second night, as we were once again cruising through our favorite Bayfront Park, my husband heard the familiar “OH MY WORD!”, which means he should turn the vehicle around at the next available corner and come at it again (because a stop never happens fast enough; not unless we want a rear-end pile-up). Coming around for a second time makes me impatient, because even the smallest fraction of delay can change the lighting conditions enough to lose my initial aha! moment. Thankfully, however, the second drive-by netted the amazing reflections of light that enraptured me the first time.
I’m attaching a second, lighter photo below, as the one above is possibly a little darker than the painting. The lighter photo misses the mark a little with the color of the sky.
I hope you enjoy this captured moment, and that you are seeing your own special moments around you, when the sun is showing off.
