The setting was absolutely perfect and was well very attended. The lower level space where the event was set up was exclusive and large enough for people to walk, step back, converse and really
view the art in a setting that was stunning and lit perfectly. We hope to have another Spring event at the same location. Times and dates of the Spring event are being firmed up now. Watch your email.

This image depicts a young woman watching soaking in the view from the best spot on the lake and that is actually in the lake somewhere in the Northern Minnesota boundary waters. If you look carefully there is more than one person in this image.
This young woman has just taken notice that she is not alone on the lake and she stops and tries to focus her eyes on something but she is not quite sure if it is really there. For a hint the title of this painting is "Lake Maiden's" for a reason.
The magic of the boundary waters colors early or late in the day are really magical and I was trying to capture that unique combination of light and reflections that sometimes trick your eyes into seeing things that may or may not be there.
This 48" x 38" original acrylic painting was a lot of fun to do. Prints are available now.
With this painting I wanted to bring a smile and a bright sunny day every time this painting is viewed at any time of the year. Prints of this image are available.

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.
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 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.
