Jeffrey Ripple‘s new painting “Atwater Beach” was painted especially for our Summer in Wisconsin exhibition. One really needs to view this incredibly realistic, highly detailed painting in person to appreciate Jeffrey’s skill. I can get lost in the foliage alone, so am including a detail below. “Atwater Beach” perfectly captures a beautiful day on the shores of Lake Michigan in Shorewood, Wisconsin’s best park. The contrast between light and shadow and the difference in brushwork in the hazy sky versus the photo realistic landscape elements make this a very special painting. One can almost see the individual grains of sand! Best enjoyed in person, this 15×32 inch painting will be on exhibit through September 3rd.
