For years, in late August, I did a bike ride with my friends Jon VanDuinen, Dan Bolt, and Ryan Tanis up to a cottage on Big Star Lake in northern Michigan.  It was a 112 mile ride from Holland and we would have to get up early in the morning to make the ride.  We would meet our families up there in the afternoon and spend the day together as friends enjoying the last free days of summer before the school year began. This was a painting to commemorate those beautiful morning rides with my friends.
