Do you know the sweet sound of the Red-Winged Black bird? If you do - you know how welcome the arrival of these beauties and their sound is after a quiet winter. This piece was inspired by the Red-Winged birds that make Minnesota island their home in the summer. I paddled over to the island to find this guy busy flying from one cattail to the next.

Time Well Spent *SOLD



I contemplated titling this one: First, Biggest and Most. I think a lot of you would understand the title. Fishing with my family we always turn it into a friendly competition. The more I thought about fishing - the final title came to mind. I have never had a bad day fishing. Fishing could be a prescribed therapy for the mind.

Time Well Spent is an acrylic painting on stretched canvas. This is a palette knife painting with many layers. I did use brush work for the boat and fishermen details. Size is 30"x40".  Canvas is professionally stretched with cross bars and painted edges. Edges are 1.75" thick. This piece is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN  | 218-547-3729

Native Columbine

These little beauties modeled for me as I sat on the steps of my back porch. Their amazing architecture and soft color are something to behold. I'd love to do a series of the macro elements that make them whole....or even a bigger overview of a whole cluster of Columbine. Plant life is amazing!

Native Columbine is brushed acrylic ink on 350 lb. hot press paper. It is professionally framed to a final size of about 11"x13" and available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $125.00 | 218-547-3729
