Waterfalls of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Michelle Richeson's avatar Michelle Richeson

An artist from Chicago recommended I enter ArtPrize due to the size and nature of my latest paintings. In the past year I completed two large oil paintings of waterfalls found in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Chapel Falls: 69" x 48" Sable Falls: 82" x 55" My work is best displayed with plenty of room to view the paintings from a distance and up close. The lighting is important to enhance the optical effect of movement that my technique has on the viewer. My work is perceived differently by viewers at different distances. Note: photographs and digital images of my work do not capture the full impact that viewers experience when looking at the original paintings. If your venue is looking for artist involvement, I would be happy to schedule an artist talk and/or demonstration during the event.
