By the end of the year my paintings will be hung at the American Embassy in Helsinki.

 

I continue to make paintings of animals, mainly those of the north woods of my childhood.  A bear will be in the January show about the Kalevala.

 

I am working on a series of large oil paintings of trees, which are taking their own time.  They are based on the two years of abstractions, now evolving into imagery.

 

My studio is in an old elementary school, 801 North Lincoln Drive in Hancock. I love visitors!  I am usually there but please call first: 906-370-3183.  My hours are erratic.

 

 



Artworks : Tree Paintings

 When I moved back to the Upper Peninsula I responded to the beautiful trees everywhere in the forests, now grown back after being logged in the early 1900's.  Birch trees especially became a symbol for nature's ability to survive; the spaces between them as important as the trees.
