So here are my latest listings: Original Lake Effects III watercolors from last summer’s painting project of Lake Michigan; a fabulous new signed and numbered collage print series showcasing the new Lake Effects III (summer) watercolors. Also find my new 2007 handbags and scarf & bag sets (now on sale for Christmas) as well as new necklaces and earrings (also on sale for Christmas).
I made a bargain with my generous hosts: I would exchange the original paintings eventually used in Lake Effects III (the summer poster completing my Lake Effects poster series) for at least six summer weeks access to a window to paint them from. In May I went for the first week and my rather outrageous proposal seems to be working! I have totally lucked out, with interesting, compatible hosts and a beautiful place (specifics to remain private) to enjoy a real Lake Michigan summer.
Starting in May and going through September, I will be working on the third and last poster in my Lake Effects posters. I don’t know whether I should say where this window is quite yet, but it is probably all right to let on that it’s in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, looking south, which lends a slightly different perspective to the first two posters, which were painted from a west-facing window.
