Icebreaker Mackinaw Mackinaw, Michigan
Roger and Sarah travel up the eastern coast line of Michigan arriving in the village of Mackinaw City. Sarah tours a retired U. S. Coast Guard icebreaker and talks with an experienced engineer about the ships operations and past rescues. Roger uses oils on a 20×30″ canvas with a focus on a strong composition and subtle nuanced colors to paint the Icebreaker Mackinaw in port.
Roger and Sarah cruise to Ketchikan, Alaska visiting the downtown area before heading off to Glacier Bay National Park. Roger uses a 20×30″ canvas to paint a vessel in the marina used as a fishing tender when he returns to his studio. He focuses on creating the look of an early morning atmosphere. The cruise is peaceful and scenic along the way to the glacier field where they watch glacier calving.
Blue Water Bridge
Painting and Travel head north to Ontario Canada. Sarah spends time near the Blue Water Bridge at the Waterfront Park in Point Edward where warm fall afternoons are enjoyed by locals and visitors. Roger sets up his easel and uses acrylics on an 11×14″ Masonite board to create a panoramic landscape including the bridge from a seventh floor balcony.
