Few places could be more different than his little English Gothic hometown.  Los Angeles is a metropolis full of sun, bright colors, and everything is so artificial.  It has embraced him and has clutched it in return with will all his strength.  The pool water can conceal, reveal, and distort with every bit of sunlight, clarity, and a big splash.  This is Hollywood.

This painting would great in a small space that is red, orange, yellow, green, purple, black, white, grey, beige, or wood.

Michael Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children's Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold hundreds of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.
