Artist Comment

We enjoy a visit to the Sleeping Bear area each year!! What fun I had painting Lake Street Studios, one of Glen Arbor's memorable places! One of the things I loved best was painting the reflection of the indiginous trees of Glen Arbor in the windows of the shop.

Glen Lake calls me every year!! The turquoise, the pristine beauty... pretty amazing!! My watercolor, GLEN LAKE SPLENDOR, depicts the vivid blue and green tones of the gorgeous water. How my serotonin level soars when I view the waters of Glen Lake.

These are from my time as an Artist in Residence at Glen Arbor Arts Center in 2018. It was an honor and a huge pleasure to be there.

Artist Comment

Sometimes you experience a special moment that cannot be captured with words. One of those moments is gathering with strangers at the end of Lake Street in Glen Arbor to watch the sunset over the bay with everyone clapping at the finale. This particular evening a sailboat moored just off the beach to watch the show with us. I could not have staged this better myself and knew it would make a great submission for the Manitou Music Festival's Poster Contest.

When photographing my oil of Glen Lake, the sunlight reflected off of the thick brushstrokes in the sky. (These are not white strokes).

The piece "Good Times in Glen Arbor" can easily be cropped to fit the "two units high by three wide" and still maintain the integrity of the design.

One of my entries, "Carried Away" could easily be cropped to fit your desired dimensions for the poster. I sent you the entire image but you have my permission to crop it any way you like for the poster.
Thank you,
