'Island Light' - oil on board - 8x10 © Marc R. Hanson '09
I had the great joy and pleasure of having my youngest son Erik out painting with me today. It was a warm day but we headed for the shelter of the Boom Site near Stillwater, MN. The cliffs kept us protected from the wind that was up. This was his very first experience in painting outside from life. He did good. We're going to get him going on a course of study and I expect that he, like his older brother, has latent abilities that will come to the surface the more he works at it.
This is the piece that I did for Erik as a demo, how to put paint on, what to look for, etc..
