Original oil - 20" x 24" I decided to show this oil that I have had in and out of the closet for a couple years. Hoffmaster State Park near Grand Haven is one of my favorite places to hike and walk the beach. The painting contains much layering of color that resulted in soft and subtle textures.
Oil on canvas - 6" x 6" This study is one of several oils in progress of the shoreline at Glen Haven. I have always found juniper bushes to be particularly fascinating, with branches that present sweeping, abstract shapes in contrast to the sand and water.
Original Oil - 24" x 30" This oil was begun over 2 years ago and recently reached completion. It is one of 3 oils that were studies for my entry for ARTPrize 2011; "Solitude, Lake Michigan" (40" x 60"). This painting is now available as a giclee print - 24" x 30" on paper or on canvas. "Solitude, Lake Michigan" is also available as a giclee print.
