Actually I did a 4th painting yesterday, but I can only turn 3 in today at the Charlevoix Circle of Arts. I’m in a rush to write this blog and then schlep the paintings into town. I chose these 3 paintings because they were “identifiable”. People could instantly tell what they were. This 4th one I did purely for fun (below). It’s a view of the gigantic sand mountain on the south side of St. Mary’s Cement Factory. Everybody sees it as they exit Fisherman’s Island State Park. When I saw it I had to giggle. Giggling is a sign to me that I need to stop & pay attention! It was probably the most fun one I did yesterday, but because it’s so bizarre and colorless, I figured nobody would want it on their wall. Someday they’ll be fighting over it, though…..
