CAMPING PAINTINGS, Upper Peninsula, MI, July 2015

During the summer of 2015 I started a series of camping paintings. At each new campsite I will adapt the tent paintings in response to the site. During the first trip, I used a Eureka kitchen tent (c1964) and attached additional pieces of custom-fitted canvas scrim. I camped at Lake Superior Forest Park and North Gemini Lake Forest Park, both on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. My next trips, January – March 2016, are on the West Coast of the South Island in Aotearoa New Zealand, and the West Coast of the United States. I am using a Eureka Draw-tite mountaineering tent (c1954).

This is an ongoing project and I’ll update this page after future trips.
