Keeping Cozy

One of the thing things I love about Grand Rapids is that you can see the history here in the houses and in the trees that surround them. This piece, Keeping Cozy, illustrates the view outside of my studio's window during this season's winter. There are so many unique homes throughout this beautiful city that range in style depending on when the area was developed.  I enjoyed capturing the special characteristics of the houses in my west-side neighborhood, along with the feeling winter brings me in this charming piece.
