Olson Park, North Campus
Olson Park is my absolute favorite place to visit around Ann Arbor, and I expect to paint more scenes in the future. In such a small place there are so many colors and vistas to be discovered, and the many snaking pathways give this illusion of taking a grand hike. At the moment of capturing my reference photos, it was early in the morning and the sun was shining through the brush. The air was cold, crisp, and the park was peaceful save for the highway adjacent to the park. It’s the most beautiful area to explore, and it’s a shame it’s tainted by the constant noise from cars in the distance.
Even so, it gives me great comfort to walk the paths alone and I hope you may seek out Olson Park as well.
