For ArtPrize 2014, I decided to create a series of paintings that capture Michigan's beautiful and unique landscape. I traveled across the state in order to paint these scenes immersed in nature on location at various parks. With these paintings, I hope to bring a sense of pride and appreciation to the beautiful state of Michigan.
I visited the Pictured Rocks for the first time last fall, and knew that I had to return to paint the amazing sandstone cliffs. I created this pieces at Miners Beach along the Picture Rocks National Lakeshore. I thought this scene was really interesting the way Miners River leads into Lake Superior and the Pictured Rocks begin.
