This painting was one that had been brewing inside of me for a while before I finally sat down and painted it. I wanted to silhouette the palisades against an early morning sunrise. I made an 8 x 10 study and then used that to create this painting. My friend was confused by the title and asked why I just didn't title it "Sunrise on Clearwater Lake". I'm getting tired of titles that state the obvious and trying to come up with titles that relate more to what I was feeling when I painted them. These types of sunrises are common in most parts of the world and I was wondering if I would ever become indifferent to them. I don't think so. They are always amazing.

This is a view looking west (or down the shore) on the beach at Nanibijou Lodge on Lake Superiors North Shore. This beach is not far from my house and on an occasional Sunday, I'll enjoy the lodges infamous Sunday brunch with its blueberry sausages and planked trout. Its a great place to paint, too!
