"The Dawning" is a pastel completed a few years ago and influenced by a predawn walk around the harbor of the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club, early on July 5th. The evening before, the club was the scene of family gatherings and memorable moments celebrating our country's birthday, with a wild and exciting fireworks display high above the clubhouse on Lake St. Clair. What a difference a few hours makes.
This past weekend in 2017, this special piece was donated to the Yacht Club Committee for Youth Sailing, for auction, and is now in the possession of another generous donor who believes in supporting youth sailing on our great lake.
Congratulations to its new owner. May "The Dawning" have a happy new home.
