S.S.-Daniel-J.-Morrell.jpg (133353 bytes)
The oil painting I did of the S.S. Daniel J. Morrell was selected to be displayed in "Artprize 2014", an art show in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  It will be displayed at "Leo's Restaurant" in the downtown area behind the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Above I have attached a picture of the selected oil painting I did. The show runs from the Middle of September thru the Middle of October.
