Here is my first painting, Sailing Away, from the Ohio State Park series. I have decided to begin painting small acrylic canvases -- this one is 5"x7" -- which could later become larger paintings or drawings. This way I will be able to finish more quickly as we make our visits in the spring, summer and fall and leave the larger work for the winter when not so much is going on.
One beautiful July morning last summer while vacationing on Catawba Island, my husband and I visited East Harbor. We loved the wildness of the beach trail from which this scene was taken. Quite different from the swimming beaches of the surrounding area.
