Trout In Grass

Brook Trout are abundant in northern Iowa where this one was caught you just have to find the right stream.  Like the salmon shown in the previous post the grass and the texture of the fish provide interesting contrasts for this acrylic piece. This will be part of the expanding "Fish Series"  & "Cabin Art"collections also. 

Salmon On Rocks

This Salmon was caught on the Missouri River on a beautiful October day. The contrast of the rocks and the colors of this majestic fish add to the drama of the image. This will be part of the expanding "Fish Series"  & "Cabin Art"collections.

Ice Queen

By February in Minnesota the winters are beginning to get long and cold has settled every in to wait for the thaw. This surreal painting started with the polar bear and ended up with a boat and queen on a horizon line going somewhere. This painting was just pure fun to create and definitely means different things to different people.

This recent work is part one of a series that will be hung as individual pieces. I have not produced a multiple series of work that are meant to be hung as one so I am anxious to see how this series will turn out. At any rate here is the first one.

This is a recent project that I really had fun doing because it is so different than the type of work what I usually do. In my travels I have noticed more and more of these "Barn Quilts" on the outside of all kinds of farm out buildings so I know there is a collection of people who are creating these unique designs for their families and there farms. I plan on doing more of these in the upcoming year they are fun and a nice change for me.
