MYSTIC CAIRNS & SPIRTURAL PLACES
Garry McMichael has been developing a body of work he calls Mystic Cairns. It is a series of paintings of rocks in the form of still-lifes and rock-strewn landscapes that are the emphasis for this body of work. Garry’s inspiration to paint Mystic Cairns comes from his travels across America to the Great Lakes, and out west to the Red Rock Country of Utah and Arizona. Whenever he comes across these beautiful cairns, created and left behind by other creative rock lovers, he turns them into subjects for his paintings. Think of his cairn paintings as collaborations with rock lovers and artists he’s never met.
