Working on large tree imagery, focusing on the energy between shapes and spaces, and the dynamics of color, oil on linen.

 

 Drawing on panels with pencil and oil, plant imagery, same energy.  

 

Also doing some 3 dimensional work.  A summer with no pressure, time to follow my own rhythm. 

 

My next show is in October, at the Paige Wiard Gallery in Calumet.

 

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.
