Rog's Old Ford 100 & Fish in the Garden
TITLE: Rog's Old Ford 100 & Fish in the Garden
ARTIST: Julia Wells
MEDIA: Metal Print
ABOUT: As part of Studio 23's Art Around the City Event, artists were invited to submit their pieces. Only 50 would be selected, printed, and featured on plaques around Bay City. Julie Wells gave an artist's statement for the project: "Julie Wells is a color pencil artist who resides in Harrison, Michigan. She loves to draw elements of the natural world. Her technique is based in contrasting colors, which she enjoys implementing. She often draws with one tone in the foreground against a colorful background—or maybe the reverse, an intense observation of a colorful piece against a dense one-tone background. She takes all her own photographs and uses them as the basis for her artwork. She takes photos on walks in the forest or garden. They are to her perfect pictures of nature whether at its best or worst."
