Great Spirit of the Heavens

Lisa Spielmaker's avatar Lisa Spielmaker

Above is a my finished oil painting, please click for full image. This past summer I have been creating a 4 by 5 foot oil painting of the night sky over Mackinac Island as viewed from St. Ignace. The sky is illuminated by the vast Milky Way, which is surrounded by the dancing beauty of the Northern Lights. I have been immensly influenced by the beauty of the Upper Peninsula. It is a place like no other and once you experience it you will always want to return again and again for the peaceful wilderness, pristine waters of our great lakes, and the amazing beauty of the celestial views by the clear dark nights. I affectionately name this piece "Great Spirit of the Heavens."
