An Off-trail Expedition into Ottawa Sands is part of the Travel Series.
The Travel Series is in response to trips that I have taken. Everyone remembers different pieces of a memory through all different senses. Sometimes memories come back to me through smell, or a certain feel of the air or feel of my body. Most of the time my memory is triggered by visual pieces from a trip that pop up in my head. These are the pieces that I focus on in my paintings. It could be the mountains, the trees, the structures of the buildings or houses. Sometimes it is the way that the shadows hit the ground. To others this becomes an artistic chaotic structure, but to me it is a visual journal of the places that I have been and the things that I have discovered.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC PRINT
This piece of artwork is tribute to my visit HOME to Michigan or the holidays. I received the greatest Christmas gift from my niece and two nephews. It was an adventure into the woods with them and my dad. We visited a new park called Ottawa Sands just outside of Grand Haven. The kids in true explorer spirit would not stay on the trails. We had a grand expedition making up all sorts of fun stories and tromping around the snow in the woods.
