Perfect Summer

Summer Skies
6x12 oil on panel

Summer Skies is the June theme for the Girls Just Wanna Paint and this is a stand in for the one that got away ;) 

I spent a few days last week on Block Island with my brother. We didn't bring a car so I just wandered around the main drag near the ferry landing enjoying the old hotels and the plethora of boaters in for the July 4th Celebration.

Hotel Manisses

There are beautiful old hotels on the Island and the weather was superb. I didn't bring all my gear but I found a shady spot and did a sketch of the Surf Hotel.

the architecture is very Edward Hopper

Lightburne Cottage

This little shop is a must see. Everything is handmade and Jan, the artist, is a bubbling fountain of creativity.

South East Lighthouse

More paintings on the way of this beautiful place.
