North Tonawanda boathouse park

 Notice the tiger!
 The NFPAP painters returned to the Niagara River and one of our favorite spots, near the Erie Canal. This day, the wind at the N. Tonawanda boathouses was too strong for me to paint so I was sketching various angles of buildings on the water. One of the residents asked me to paint their two cottages, including the huge tiger on the porch roof of the white one. Sitting in the shade of a huge tree with my car blocking the wind, I enjoyed the atmosphere of the residents tackling summer chores around me.
