9780970857507: Lake Lover's Year: A Writer Learns to Paint

Lake Lover's Year presents 115 full-color watercolors--85 of them painted from the same cottage window on Lake Michigan--with an accompanying journal describing a career writer's process of learning a new medium. The author records, both visually and verbally, the astonishing daily changing colors and moods of a Great Lakes beach, as well as scenes from beaches up and down Lake Michigan.

Mary Blocksma has published 21 books, the last three focusing on the Great Lakes. Her work has been featured by Quality Paperback Book Club, Rodale Book Club, Reading Rainbow, Junior Literary Guild and Reading Is Fundamental. Mary Blocksma writes from an adventurer's point of view, exploring new places with the freshness and excitement of "beginner's mind," as in GREAT LAKES NATURE and GREAT LAKES SOLO, both published by iUniverse.
