Holly Said:

My paintings focus on the breath taking beauty of the Sleeping Bear area. I have been visiting Glen Arbor regularly since 1990 and paint plein air when I am here. The days and weeks of sitting in the dunes or the fields observing nature and historic farms have imprinted these views on my brain.

Oil paint is my medium and I paint on panels when I paint outside in the warmer months. During the cold times in Michigan I paint in my studio on larger canvases and reiterate what I have seen and felt in the dunes and fields.

I have been painting in the Sleeping Bear Dunes since the early 1990s, taking classes through the Glen Art Art Center and becoming an Artist in Residence in 2009. The work in this show represents my most recent interpretations of the beauty I find here. Recently I have been fascinated by the intimate corners of barns connecting and the shadows found there.
