Mackinac Island Pier

LG-Mackinac Island Pier
Mackinac Island Pier, 30″ x 40″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

This painting was started during my demo at LaFontsee Galleries on Dec. 8. I finally added the remaining touches this week, with the goal to keep it as loose and wild as it began. Acrylic Artist Magazine, in their cover-page article about me in the Fall, 2016 issue, described my art this way: “Nelson balances abandonment with restraint.” This piece is probably one of my stronger examples of that tight-rope balancing act.
