Journey Through Michigan

"Journey Through Michigan" is a series of watercolor paintings on Aquabord® depicting scenes from my travels through Michigan. Winter, spring, summer, fall - all seasons are represented in over (200) 6" x 6" paintings. From vast landscapes to intimate details "Journey Through Michigan" includes images that inspired me, some very recognizable, others not so much. Subject matter is varied, including cityscapes, flora and fauna, people, activities, buildings and other structures, natural landmarks, farmland, lakes and rivers, and humorous experiences. In painting these images I hoped to make a connection with the viewer, to evoke a memory of past travels or experiences. Above you can see a sampling of the paintings for this series. In addition to the 6" x 6" paintings the entry will include a painting of a map of Michigan with sketches of exhibited paintings at the appropriate location. The public will be invited to draw on this painting to indicate their favorite Michigan location.
