Myths, Rivers and Rocks
YES, Michigan! ....and oh so fabulous!
I had the privilege of visiting a place this past weekend that I haven't seen in YEARS! The Mackinac Bridge! This bridge separates Lake Huron and Lake Michigan and connects the Lower Peninsula to the Upper Peninsula of the State of Michigan. It's quite a site to see. (In fact, click here to view the Mackinac Bridge Camera view)
Most amazing to me was the clarity of the water. I'd forgotten how clear the rivers and lakes of Michigan are...and Lake Huron most certainly did NOT disappoint. The clarity of the waters of Lake Huron remind me of the painting above because you can see the rocks on the bottom through this clear water.
Anyhow...this little mini-abstract titled "Lethe" was named for the mythological river of the same name.
Primarily painted with hues of blue, black, green, orange and silver acrylic paints it measures only
3.50" x 3.50" x 0.75" (Please note the size of this piece. Hence the name mini.) and is painting on an oak wood block.
