Found in Michigan

Jessica Baptiste's avatar Jessica Baptiste

My entry is based on Michigan's beautiful natural offerings. These are some of my favorite things that are found in Michigan, including Michigan's state bird the Robin and state flower the Apple Blossom. Michigan is based on the Chippewa Indian word "meicigama" meaning great water, referencing our five great lakes. Our state motto, "Si quaeris peninsulam amoenam, circumspice" means: If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you. Approximately 4 ft by 1 1/2 ft with 3 inch depth, mixed media, acrylic paint on canvas and board. Piece will consist of 3 canvas panels attached to wood panel, which is a repurposed Michigan attic door. Frames were all cut, assembled and painted by Artist.
