Look Up

As I spend more time at home I feel like I should be accomplishing more. I feel like I should contribute more. Anxiety keeps me from getting a good night of rest. What calms me is nature and fresh air. I put on my jacket and wander outside and balance is restored. I take a deep breath and tell myself to enjoy this time at home because schedules will be restored and Covid 19 will pass and I will miss my peace at home with no set schedule and more time to paint. So Look Up and enjoy nature and time and try not to think about the things we think are falling apart.  

Funny, when I reflect on the times in my past when I was at a crossroads, I have always gone for a walk and painted a tree. This tree is titled: Look Up. It is a brushed acrylic ink painting on 140 lb. cold press paper. Painted area is 7"x16" - full paper with border is 10"x18". This original is professional framed to a final size of 14"x23". It is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $420.00 | 218-547-3729

Essence of Summer




I have a lot of respect for the sailors who can read the wind and guide their boat to where they want to go. I am NOT a sailor but have been on several very memorable sailboat adventures.  This is a skill I admire. This painting was inspired by a couple I could tell were well practice at reading the wind and sailing together. Imagine the early August sunshine and ease of sailors in their element dancing across the clear blue lake. 

Essence of Summer is a 36"x36" acrylic painting on stretched canvas with 1.5" thick painted edges and cross braces. It is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $1,950.00 | 218-547-3729
