A Sunny Day in Charlevoix – Magnet by Linda Boss. This magnet measures 2 inches by 3.5 inches. This image is a reproduction of the original 10×10 acrylic on board studio painting. It was done with a brush and a palette knife so there is a nice texture. I often work from photos and used to carry my camera with me in the car to take reference pictures when I could. Now it is much easier with my phone. This was a bright sunny day and I loved the color of the sky and water framed the lighthouse. I was very happy painting this painting on an early spring day in anticipation of the summer to come. I think it shows… it is a “happy” painting wouldn’t you say? I love the way the chunky clouds turned out and the bright blues of the sky and the water. The original was very cottagey with a white washed chunky wood frame. It was inspired by the way the sun was bouncing off the side of the lighthouse and casting interesting shadows on the rocks on the south pier. I also thought the way the waves were rolling in to shore and the blues and greens of the water were bright and cheery. I needed that after the long, cold, gray Northern Michigan winter.
