Most recently, I have been going back to mixed media on paper.  The abstraction is turning into dwelling places of sorts.  The first one I put on line someone wanted to buy, so I suppose that is an indication I can keep going in this diraction!!

 

I am also working on a series of paintings of rabbits in environments.  Lately I have been drawn to rabbits as spirit animals.  I feel concerned for the safety of animals in our encroaching civilization.

 

And continuing with the trees although I keep wanting to make them more abstract as well.  Taking time out from showing so I can have the freedom to go my way.

 

  

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 since 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.
