Lakeside Plein Air Paintout

This is the third year I have attended this paint out which is help in conjunction with the Lakeside Wooden Boat Show at Lakeside, Ohio. This year I stayed with a host family and it was a more comfortable experience.

I painted the ubiquitous Marblehead Lighthouse because I hadn't done it and I needed to. Everyone paints Marblehead Lighthouse. It's almost a requirement. It was unbelievable hot on the day I did this so I searched for available shade and ended up as far away as you could get from it- leaning against a wall in the parking lot, with shrubs providing meager cover. At least there is usually some kind of breeze when you are near Lake Erie so it's not as bad as it might be.
