“The Great Lakes climate not only has four distinct seasons, but also highly variable weather within seasons,” says artist Elizabeth G Fagan. “Temperatures can vary 40 degrees or more in a single day.”
The Great Lakes region of North America enjoys four distinct seasons. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter each brings changes to the natural world, not only in average temperatures, but also in the behaviors of animals and plants, the Great Lakes and the sky above.
“I love the climate at Lake Michigan’s Left Coast,” says artist Elizabeth G Fagan. “Tucked between lake bluffs on the west and Lake Michigan on the east, this narrow strip sees seasons that are more moderate than they are in the Great Plains. Temperatures are cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter—a true Maritime climate.”
Seasonal themes run deep in Fagan’s work. To view examples,
