Original Oil Painting on Gallery Wrapped Canvas: Three characteristics define the Ozarks; it’s clear running streams and rivers, the rugged rock-strewn hills and its enticing hardwood forests. I titled this painting “My Ozarks” because of two of those characteristics, the rocky hills and the fall colors of its forests. This is My Ozarks that I have grown to love since my early teens when my father taught me to hunt and fish. Today I do all my hunting with a camera and a paint brush, but the same excitement I felt as a boy is still there.
For three decades, Garry McMichael has been traveling the back roads of Middle America, especially the Ozarks, capturing its beauty with the camera, charcoals, pastels and paint. Garry is constantly searching for those fleeting moments when the landscape, the atmospheric conditions and the ever-changing light come together in a flash of visual inspiration. Garry photographs as well as paints his experiences.
