this is a site to share new works as I finish them including paintings, illustrations, hand formed and shaped necklaces. ...and maybe I'll share a story or two about how they came about.
|Dockside is the second painting in a commissioned series. The first was "Minnesota Boys for the Summer." Each painting is 36" x 36" and based on carefree days fishing, swimming, boating and being kids at the lake in northern Minnesota. I took a little longer than usual with this painting because I wanted to get the details right. I hope anyone who had the joy of visiting the Sinclairs at their cabin on Leech Lake will smile when they see this scene.|
This piece went very quickly and was driven by an image I had of free flying birds in bright colors. The birds are not any type specifically but I was imagining the sailing swoop of the woodpecker. This piece is about color and vibrant life. I was combing abstract lines with a folkish loose style to add to the lightness of the piece.
"Mind the Sun" is a large 36" x 36" acrylic painting on stretched canvas.
