Grand Rapids Connections

Michele Gort's avatar Michele Gort

My painting is in the process of being created. I work as an expressionistic landscape and abstract artist. "Grand Rapids Connections" is an expressionistic landscape of the Grand Rapids City, focusing on the bridges and the river that brought the people of Grand Rapids here so many years ago. I have a passion for studying architecture and painting water and sky. This painting captures my love of all three. I have begun this painting but I do not consider it finished yet. I am enjoying using my palette knifes to paint and build up thick impasto layers. Grand Rapids is an exciting and energetic city and I feel passionate about expressing lots of of energy and depth with my paintings.
