My entry for ArtPrize 9, The Rhythms and Colors of the Porcupine Mountains, was inspired by my time spent in the upper peninsula of Michigan last summer during an artist-in-residence program at the Porcupine Mountains. I have created seven large paintings that capture the vibrational energy and life forms that exist at the state park. I cannot wait to share with you this new body of work that captures the beautiful landscape of the Porcupine Mountaints.
My seires of paintings will be shown at the Panera Bread in downtown Grand Rapids acorss from Rosa Parks Circle. Look for my work in the front entry way, as well as the back room.
In the past, the majority of my works have captured the colors and forms within the sandy landscape along Lake Michigan. Because of this, the lush green forests of the Porcupine Mountains has opened a new world to my work, bringing a fresh color palate, new forms and scenery to my body of work.
I will be at Panera Bread on Saturday September 23rd from 11:00 to 8:00 pm. Hope to see you!
