Summer Fare


Acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas - 12x16 inches, contact the artist if interested

This painting has been excepted in the Bon Appetit exhibition at Studio Pintura Gallery in Minneapolis, MN.  Opening reception is November 17, 2018 at 5:30 pm if you are in town and interested, then the show runs through January 5th.  The theme of the show is food, anything that includes food.  I had this reference photo from the Minnesota State Fair this year and loved the light.  Since the fair is all about food it worked perfect for this exhibition, plus I painted the sides with more fair inspired imagery and food.

Beginnings


Acrylic on stretched canvas - 12x16 inches, contact me if interested

This is more an imaginative painting where I explored drips and splatters in the background.  The bird nest had fallen from under my deck with blue eggs scattered around, there were at least 6 to 8 eggs laying in front of the nest.  No wonder the nest fell, the birds were definitely over achievers!  I felt bad for the robins but it was a great photo opportunity for me.  After dripping and playing with the background I notice a bird shape appear in the upper righthand corner and added some soft detail to enhance it.  Mom or Dad robin will always be watching over their nest.

River Reflections

Painted on location, this is a typical Minnesota summer scene, you know land of 10,000 lakes and who knows how many rivers.  It's all about the water here in the summer so I loved the pontoon sitting at the dock waiting for a fun cruise.  It was an overcast day but the reflections in the water were great.

Crossing The Headwaters


Not For Sale - Acrylic on gessobord, 8x10 inches

I painted this for my Grandson who is walking across the headwaters of the Mississippi with his Grampa.  Fun day, great memories!  He's 18 now and in the army, it's true how time flies!

Friend Reflections

We spent a lot of time at the beach in northern California when I visited my daughter a few years ago.  She was totally embarrassed when I took photos of people unaware so I promised to get permission.  This man with his dog was very obliging, he even asked what I wanted him to do, which of course was just to be himself.  The people at the beach were nice and not suspicious of me, maybe because there are a lot of artists and art communities in the area.  I think California would be a very cool place to live, if I could afford it.

Passing Storm

A few weeks ago I was meeting some people to paint at an outdoor theater where a concert was going on.  These huge clouds were rolling in and I thought for sure we would get rained out.  I sat on a small hill with the theater behind me and found this great view.  I love the movement going on in this little painting, maybe it was due to the music and the storm rolling through or I was just in a hurry to finish before the rain started.  What ever the reason I love the feel of this little painting.
