Wind *sold

Wind is a small 5"x5" acrylic painting on stretched canvas.  I was flipping through some of my old sketchbooks and came across a sailboat sketch that told me it wanted to become a painting. The sailors were probably heading home after a day exploring the lake.

Wind is available for sale at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN.  $75.00 framed or $40.00 unframed

Bittersweet IV - 5"x5" *sold

This little 5"x5" piece is the smallest in my series of Bittersweet paintings. The berries are just slightly bigger than the real bittersweet berry would be. The combination of bright orange against a background of blue, green, grey and yellow is one of my favorite palettes. This one needs to be seen in person.

Bittersweet IV is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $36.00

Red Head *sold

We all have our favorite flowers. Some pick favorites for color, scent, shape or the memories that go with them. I associate certain flowers with certain people. This painting is titled "Red Head," because I think of red heads as vibrant, outspoken, social butterflies. I have never know an introverted red head. To me, these flowers represent the lively red heads of the world. The flower is not one in particular. They are a made up combination of Indian Paintbrush with a bit of Lilly intertwined.

Red Head is a 24" x 30" acrylic painting on stretched canvas.
Available at Peculiar Painter - 405 Front St W. Walker, MN 56484
