I painted this at Illinois Beach State Park on the 4th of July. Lots of people came and went as I painted, but the man at the top of the hill was there for almost the entire time I was painting. I think he must have gone through four cigars because he was smoking almost that entire time, too (Unless one cigar can last several hours?).
