Years go by fast. Turning into almost 3 years since our last visit to Mackinac Island! Hoping to fix that this year. Here’s a blue hour shot from a nice calm morning back in the ‘old days’ of 2018.

I looked out this morning at a grey dreary day and expectations were low for my first walk with Alfie. Rounding the corner to Arch Rock I could see the vivid color of the water and the watercolor clouds. I could hear the sound of the birds and slight waves on the shore. Surprised and grateful for this peaceful start to a work day.
This is probably one of the most photographed landmarks on the Island. I know I’ve taken hundreds of photos myself. But no moment is alike. The light, the sky, the water are forever changing. It’s like a first portrait every time.

“Lilacs For Anne” A recent painting and entry for this years Mackinac Island Lilac Festival Poster Contest which has a storied tradition. This years theme is “Legends and Lore of Mackinac Island” and I chose to depict Anne’s Tablet. A nook on the east bluff that tends to be known more to the locals but, is an amazing view!

One thing Constance Fenimore Woolson was known for as a novelist, poet and short story writer is fictions about the Great Lakes region. Us that know the island experience understand it sounds a bit fictional when you try and explain it to those that have not been!

If I told you one day, “I took a ferry ride across the Straits of Mackinac and then a horse taxi to get to my plein air painting location,” it would sound made up. But its true!
