Early morning in Fairport

This view was painted at the Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park, looking up toward the bluffs. It was 36 degrees, and no one was there, preferring their chair in a warm house to a chilly park bench with a great view.
I played at this park in the early 50s when my father was fishing at the nearby pier. Theplace was dirty and sleazy then, but Lake Metroparks now manages it and it is a jewel on the coast of Lake Erie.
