Historical Context:
This oil was painted on Mackinac Island during the summer Mike painted pastel portraits in the lobby of the Grand Hotel. Clarice McKeever owned and managed a small shop on the island where she matted, framed and sold prints. She gave Mike the centers of the mats she had cut. He shellaced those pieces and then painted with oils on them.
