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.
Fiery Maple was inspired by a lively Maple that lives on the south side of Leech Lake. I used a combination of Caran d Ache Technalo graphite pencils along with M. Graham watercolors and Pebeo drawing gum on this piece. With Maple trees it is fun to exaggerate the colors - hence the name Fiery Maple. The tree that modeled for me was dressed in it's full green glory, at the time, but I can just picture her dressed in with flair for the Fall.
Fiery Maple is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, Minnesota.
