Bohn's Point - Lake Minnetonka plein air

This is my 2nd painting form Saturday's outing. The view across the bay of Bohn's Point om Lake Minnetonka. Being at the lake reminds me of childhood vacations. We would make the annual drive in the station wagon from Dayton Ohio to Minnesota to visit my aunt and uncle and cousins. We would spend the week at the lake camping, fishing, rides in the boat. Eventually my family moved here because they loved it so much. My grandparents eventually followed and there were many visits to their lake home in the Brainerd area. The smells of the lake always bring back those memories - that odd mixture of lake and boat motors - I now cringe when I think of what goes into the water with all the motors, but it always brings back those sweet memories.
