My Happy Place

Julie Lynn Podsiadlik's avatar Julie Lynn Podsiadlik

“My Happy Place” Everyone has their happy place and these two oil paintings represent a few of them for me. They include first the stoic “Ludington Lighthouse” in Ludington, Michigan, where I have sat, more times than I can count, at the end of its comforting pier and pondered so many thoughts. and second, are the happy lily pads. While kayaking along the Platte River, which lets out at the coast of the “sleeping bear dunes,” near the town of Empire and Frankfort, Michigan, I took a picture while floating next to these lily pads. (The lighthouse took 40 hours to complete, and the Lily’s took 25.) It’s not hard to find a happy place when you are lucky enough to live in Beautiful Michigan!
