Pictured Rocks - Acrylic on canvas

Hello friends,
Today I have something which is special to me, so sharing with you all. I tried to paint a beautiful scenery of sandstone cliffs and seascape inspired by the place "Pictured Rocks". It is a wonderful place with cliffs,colored rocks,waterfalls and hiking trails, a must place to visit. One can admire this beauty by hiking trails, but you can see only the top view.

The best way to view the colored sandcliffs is from a boat tour.They canceled our boat tour due to bad weather, we booked again for the next day, glad we took the right decision. This 2 hour 30 mins trip was breathtaking, they covered major viewpoints of sandcliffs,sea caves and beaches.I cannot forget this amazing trip,so decided to frame it.
