The Manitous

I just completed two paintings for the Manitou Music Festival annual poster competition. The festival takes place in Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Dunes, along the shores of Lake Michigan. The concert is organized by Glen Arbor Arts Center, where I was artist-in-residence in 2014. South Manitou Island Lighthouse is located on South Manitou Island in Lake Michigan, 16 miles west of Leland, Michigan. The North Manitou Shoal Light, also known as The Crib, is located in Lake Michigan, southeast of North Manitou Island in Leland Township, Michigan.
