Two to Water Street Gallery

A couple of new works to start the season at Water Street Gallery’s Prelude show.

Both studio pieces from spots in Michigan where I have painted plein air in the past.

Waning Winter

With spring around the corner, I feel better about painting winter. This is a scene I found while driving around the Leelanau peninsula in northwest Michigan. I’m normally most excited about painting on bright, sunny days when shadows are prevalent. But the subtle purple and blues of this winter day were irresistible.

This was a studio work after my trip. Lots of plein air soon to come.
