Winter painting in Northern Michigan outdoors takes on an entirely new look when the landscapes are vamped in a snowy, fresh blank canvas. Artist Brenda J. Clark utilizes wintry elements in her paintings of Northern Michigan destinations surrounding Leland. Her husband Johnston M. Mitchell analyzes Brenda’s paintings on the MyNorthCommunity blog:

Up in Michigan. Snow.

Pure white. Fluffy and soft. Virgin. Where no man should tread.

A wonderlust for snow and the loving pact that Mother Nature and Ol’ Man Winter have struck. Looking out at winter up in Michigan, snow symbolizes it. Our minds always interprets it as white.

Winter’s snow up in Michigan also makes for painting outdoors. Just ask Expressionist painter, Brenda J. Clark. She paints winter’s white differently.
