Summer on the Water

What is more refreshing in summer than time on, near, or in the water. Of course here in Michigan we are blessed with so many waterways, large and small.
Here at The Gift Shop, we have some lovely artwork that reflects the joy and serenity of life near the water. This week the works of Hilda Havlik, Catherine Firmbach, Roselyn Rhodes, Robert Mowry, and Marianna Defer-Pfeifer are featured, each piece with a "Life on the Water" theme.

Hilda Havlik is a photographer with a great eye for composition and atmosphere. Here is just one of her photos. It shows kayaks on a beach.

Catherine Firmbach is another one of our talented photographers. Pictured is a beautiful sunset on the water.

The paintings of Roselyn Rhodes are so beautiful and evocative. Here is a Glicee print of her painting of sailboats on the water.

Can you possibly have too many photos of sunrises/sunsets on the water? Here is a really pretty photo from Robert Mowry of just that.

Marianna Defer-Pfeifer is a gifted painter, and painting instructor. Here is a calm scene of Lake Michigan that Marianna has created.
