Michigan The Beautiful

Karen Hammond's avatar Karen Hammond

Michigan is so beautiful! Referred to as "The Great Lakes State", Michigan borders 4 of the 5 Great Lakes; Superior, Huron, Michigan and Erie. Michigan has thousands of inland lakes of various sizes and over 300 Rivers. Over half of the state is covered by Forest Area-approximately 19 million acres. Michigan has some of the most beautiful dunes in the U.S.A. My presentation of "Michigan The Beautiful" is made from hand-rolled and cut papers of various colors and lengths. I painted (4) of the Great Lakes using colors to show approximate depths of the waters. The papers are placed on end to show approximate elevations. The frame is custom made with wood and canvas. I also show some of the major Rivers and a few Lakes with various colors/patterns. I depict most major Islands including the beautiful Isle Royale-located north of the upper peninsula in Lake Superior. I hope you enjoy my presentation of "Michigan The Beautiful"
