Celebration of Artists

Sandra Difazio Oil Painter

Excited to feature our next artist exhibiting in the Scenes of Michigan, Winter Exhibition – award winning oil painter Sandra Difazio.

Sandra is a representational oil painter and avid plein air artist. Painting plein air gives Sandra the opportunity to not only see color and light but also feel the environment and attempt to translate what she experiences into her paintings. Her work has been exhibited in museums, galleries, and in private and corporate collections throughout Michigan. She is a member of several paint guilds and we are honored to have Sandra’s work in the gallery.

Tahquamenon Falls is a pure Michigan treasure. Lower Tahquamenon Falls is a plein air painting created as part of the DNR’s “Paint the Parks” Centennial Celebration. It was selected to receive the “Best Sense of Place” Award. The exquisite colors and textures in this painting are a must-see.

Sleeping Bear Dunes is a popular Michigan destination. Sandra’s piece titled Good Harbor Beach, invites the viewer to experience the warm breezes, sunshine, and crisp, clear water that makes our Michigan shorelines so appealing.

Interested in the architectural charm of Michigan’s historic buildings, Sandra was inspired to paint the The Anna Scripps Conservatory at Belle Isle. Belle Isle is one of the most beautiful public parks in the State of Michigan. Sandra captures the intricate details and beauty of this historic building.
