Artist Residency

I have been here in Glen Arbor, Michigan, for a week as the Art Association’s ‘artist in residence.’ A great opportunity for a mini-sabatical away from everyday responsibilities and a chance, hopefully, to grow as a painter. I have been out painting plein air everyday and during some rain, painting in the provided studio. It’s been great and I have another week to go!

This is a view from one of the overlooks on the Pierce Stocking Drive, part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, looking south over North Bar Lake to the Empire Buffs and Lake Michigan.

More to come.

Fun to see the real subject and the painting.
