Crooked Tree Arts Center

Paint Out 2008 at the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey Michigan was a wonderful successe. Painters came from all areas of Michigan and near by states to paint the wonderful area near and around Petosky.

If you have never visited the area it is worth the trip. The downtown area is wonderful. It boasts many parks and there are inviting beaches for the weary walker to sit on, with nicely shades areas and a view of Lake Michigan that is breath taking.

A group of artist tak a break and enjoy the cheese and wine at the reception.

Find a wonderful area to paint was no problem. The beaches were bright and cheerful the day was sunny and the view from anywhere offered a painted all kinds of ideas.

The Harbor Park area with the boat docks was one of the areas I stopped to paint at.

The artist all came back to the gallery by 6 PM with wet painting framed. There was a reception celebrating with wine and cheese. All the work created was hung and 5 paintings sold that night. Painting will be on display and for sale until the 30th of August. If you are in the Petoskey area stop at the Crooked Tree Arts Center or one of the many galleries around town, grab some ice cream or fudge and enjoy the view.

A group of Artist gather to talk about the days work at the art center.

Oh Yes, and here I am with the days framed oil paintings.
