Historical Context:
Richard Brinn earned his Master of Fine Arts in painting at WAyne State University. Since then he has exhibited all over the midwest, and taught for over 24 years at the Schoolcraft College in Livonia, Michigan. While he would consider himself primarily a landscape painter, he also paints figurative work, portraits and experiments with painting on ceramics. For this series of paintings he revisited the same spot over three years, each visit during a different season.
