This mini-series of lake pieces featuring orange and gray was inspired by a pair of hand-felted slippers.
One of my friends had posted a photo of the slippers on Facebook. I was intrigued by their color and the gradation of the hues from orange to gray. I couldn't get them out of my mind. A few days later Good Goods gallery that carries my artwork in Saugatuck, Michigan put out a call to all their artists to create new pieces for a special show titled "Lake Time." It didn't take long for me to know exactly what I wanted to do ... create three new lake pieces based on the intriguing hues of those slippers. The titles are "By the Light of the Moon," "At Daybreak," and "After the Storm." Each measures 21"x 17" and are mounted on stretched canvas frames. I'll post more about each of these pieces in the near future.
Tomorrow night is the opening reception for this show that celebrates Good Goods twenty-third anniversary. If you're in the area please come. It's from 4-8:00, Saturday, May 19th. Go here to see photos of some of the other art created especially for this show.
Oh ... I ordered those slippers all the way from Lithuania and am considering wearing them to the party.
