A Driving Inspiration

Most of the time when I am driving the 'perfect painting' rushes past me and I either don't have my sketch book, nor my camera, nor the time to stop to record it.

It wasn't the case this time, as I drove along the north shore of Lake Superior today.

These dramatic scene were perfect for future paintings.


  1. Glad your trip is going well and you have opportunities to enjoy the beauty of Creation, Winston.

    Journeying Blessings,


  2. Hi Winston,
    yes, it's great that you stay by a beautiful natural as like this pic... it's quite the wonderful inspiration for the painting; I also hope to see your painting again, I like your loose style that I can touch in your work!!!
