Float plane shacks...

"Float Plane Shacks"  oil
8" x 10" canvas
There is a lake not too far from my neighborhood.  It's a take off and landing strip for float planes.  I used to take my boys there when they were young....we would eat our little sack lunches and watch the planes take off and land.  We were right there on the edge of the lake....and you could feel the engines rumble in your chest as they blew by.   Wow, nothing better than that with little boys.  I'd watch their faces while a plane would be taking oldest son would talk and point the whole time, I couldn't hear a word over the engine noise, but I shared his excitedment.  My younger son would just shake with excitement and point. 
This painting is at Lake Hood, these adorable little shacks are at each float plane "slip" as they call it, Like a water driveway for a plane.  It's parked next to it's little shack.  People plant flowers and paint these little shacks fun colors....the lake is like a small community of tiny houses, very Hansel and Gretel.
I had fun painting here that day!
Thank you for looking!
