This painting was a demo for an art class I am teaching. It is of Mackinac Island, located in Lake Huron, at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac, between Michigan’s upper and lower peninsulas. It can only be reached by boat. There are no cars there, just horses and bicycles. The island is where the movie “Somewhere in Time” was filmed. This painting is of their main street at night from a boat dock. The contrast between the light building and dark sky gives drama to the picture. Also the organic nature of the water versus the geometric shapes of the buildings make the picture interesting.
