Three new paintings were hung at an exhibition coinciding with the World Water conference here at Michigan Tech.  One is a waterfall, another a lake scene with a boat and a magic fish underwater, and the third is an ice shanty.  Two other artists, Amy Arntson, from Wisconsin, who paints lovely watercolors of lake surfaces, the other is Bonnie Peterson who does large textiles mapping environmentsl events, will share the invitational exhibition.   We hung it  Monday the 17th and added an older one of mine about a seagull and an ink drawing of a storm on the lake.  It will be up, at the Great Lakes Research Center on the MTU campus, until April 23,

 

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.
