Northwoods Bait Shop

A good friend has a home in the northwoods of Wisconsin - I have visited there often and definitely appreciate the beauty of that area.  When I heard of this bait shop on Star Lake, I asked her if she would consider a mission to find it and take many pictures of it so I could do some paintings of it.  She proved that it was not a "mission impossible" and sent me some beautiful photographs.  This is the first painting from those photos and I am going to use it as a lesson for my watercolor class tomorrow evening.

The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper with the new Golden QoR watercolors.  They are so wonderful to work with - I am really getting spoiled.
