New Watercolor and Pastel Art Bill’s World

Fishing art by Patricia Arnold

My new landscape painting Bill’s World is complete. The setting is a small lake (called Goose Lake) in Lake City, MI.

This park was often our family camping destination. Our old canvas tent, Grandma fishing, boat rides and lazy days spent swimming with my cousins are among my dearest childhood memories.

This painting has my father Bill fishing at sunset as he often does. Love you, Dad.

A New Day by Patti Arnold

Art Explosion Grayling Michigan

I just received some amazing news! My mixed media portrait of my daughter Lisa, A New Day has been accepted in the 3rd Annual Great Northern Art Explosion in Grayling, Michigan. A New Day will be one of the artworks on display at AuSable Artisan Village.

I finished this portrait over a week ago after a trip to Lake Huron. Lisa looking at the horizon inspired me to preserve the moment in art. I used watercolor, color pencil and pastels. I hope to create additional portraits with landscape settings. If you get a chance, come see my work, view it online and don’t forget to vote! For more information, visit artexplosion.org.
