The Lakeside Pavilion at Lakeside, Ohio



This is an 11" x 14" oil painting of the west side of the Pavilion at Lakeside, Ohio where we are spending a week. It was painted en plein air -- outside with the bugs and wind in one sitting. I painted this while I stood in the park shaded by tall trees and cooled by the lake breeze. The pavilion is framed by Lake Erie and the evening sun gave a rich glow to the poplars.

Ohhh painting under shaded trees and the breeze. That sounds lovely! I bet all the Nature around you was very inspiring. :) Both of these paintings are wonderful. Thanks for sharing them with us!
