The Painted Rocks near Munising, Michigan is one of the state's most beloved locations. Captured here, from a kayaker's view, is the iconic Grand Portal Point. This 16x20 watercolor painting was created with professional grade materials. The technique used is called "poured painting," which allows the artist to make a minimal number of brushstrokes. The handmade wooden frame was built from reclaimed oak lumber (flooring from a Michigan train depot). The size including the frame is 20x24 inches.
