I paint mostly the scenes here in the Midwest. I love the changing seasons that we have here. It is hard to imagine anything more beautiful then our earth. It provides for all the canvas's that I could ever fill in my lifetime. It keeps me absorbed with learning more about it. Many times it is a discovery of the things that have went unnoticed. It's an understanding, a feeling and in the end becomes a painting. If I could truly express it all in words I would be a poet/writer. So my words are translated for you with a paint brush.
Born in Wisconsin there were unlimited resources
to paint. Whether I am in the woods, on a lake, or in a field, I am always searching for the next painting, something as simple as a rock or a clump of grass that may inspire an idea. Sometimes one location will have all the elements for a painting. Other times, I draw from my imaginaltion. We all have different talents to offer. My job is to take some paint, canvas and brushes, put it all together in the form of a painting as a constant reminder of all the beauty that is all around and can be taken for granted. I hope that you enjoy my work and the work of other artists. But most important, I hope you enjoy our earth. Remember, it can't be easily restored so I ask that you walk with a lighter touch.
