The Rower


The Rower
8x10 inches
Oil on Masonite panel.

This is my painting for the current Different Strokes project, which was started by Karin Jurick, a great artist, who graciously gives of her time and advice to bring people together in the creation of art. She posted a photo of a woman rowing on Lake Michigan. As a former long-time resident of Michigan, I have been to the great lake many times. It was wonderful trying to recreate the blues and greens of a hazy summer day.
