Here is the painting I promised you. Black oak savannas can be surprisingly rich, and I enjoy looking down at the tapestry at my feet in all seasons. I wanted to indicate some of the species diversity you’ll find here. All of this is on just a thin veneer of soil over sand, which has always seemed pretty remarkable to me.
It’s funny how life can change. Usually I drift along, painting and playing with my little dog in the garden. Suddenly I find myself leading a small group of artists! We’re meeting today to discuss the possibilities of having monthly first Friday exhibits. Wow! I hesitate to mention it as the whole thing could just blow over, but I’m hoping we can pull it off. So much to consider…name for the group, event insurance, business license, sales tax, etc etc. There has been a proliferation of artist groups in my little town. We’ll be the fifth, I believe. Each has its own purpose and scope. What would be really good is if all the groups would coordinate efforts but that would be like a herd of cats all moving in the same direction.
30x40" canvas with wide gallery-wrap edges, painted black. This vibrant painting will take you to the savanna at the edge of Lake Michigan at the end of summer. Let your eye wander through, picking out the different textures and shades of color you see. The painting ships free in the continental US.
