Home & Away captures the nature’s beauty through paintings of Michigan’s seasons by Karen VanDam Michmerhuizen and Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny, France by Pamela Day.
Karen paints outdoors applying oil and cold-wax to canvas with a brush and palette knife. Her plein-air landscapes capture the light, colors, and shapes she admired growing up in Michigan, drawing viewers into their natural settings.
Inspired by a visit to Claude Monet’s home and gardens in Normandy, France, Pamela Day paints with gouache, a versatile and opaque watercolor, to capture detailed views of the flora and foliage in her signature “stylized-realism” approach.
