This is part of a new series of 12"x12" fish heads I just completed. I am sure that this will go in the cabin and hunting sections of "Berger Fine Arts" website. I will post more but like this little bass they are all game fish and are set on a black background to ensure the natural colors of each species pops off the canvas.

Anyone who has grown up on the farm can relate to this visual. This girl has found a feather on a hot summer day and believes that she is leading the orchestra of sounds that surround her. You can almost hear the wind, birds, rustling of grasses and trees on a glorious midwest day. This is one of the newer pieces of the farm series.

This is the newest of the "Farm Series" of paintings. If you grew up on a farm you know how cold it is on an early morning in January when the sun is just rising above the horizon. You also understand how it plays on all the usually vibrant colors of the farm but are muted temporarily by winter. This painting once featured "Elsie" looking down but it was too obvious for me and the composition so I ended up with this nice palette of reds, purples and cream colors. Signed prints of this piece will be available soon. Watch the "Farm Series" on the "Berger Fine Arts website.
This is another example of an idea sketch for a painting. This 20"x20" pencil drawing is done on crescent board and was one of three sketches with this one being an early version which was never completed. The original painting went into an entirely different direction but it's one of those ideas left over that I would like to finish some day.
