Frontenac Bluff Overlook


I have been outside painting whenever possible, trying to find my "sea legs" after a stretch of working in my studio. It is so different/difficult working out-doors! But there is nothing like it. This is a painting I did last year down by Lake Pepin.

" There were times when I could not afford to sacrifice the bloom of the present moment to any work, whether of the head or hands. I love a broad margin to my life." - Thoreau

Red Peony

oil on canvas
6 x 8

I have some hosta and peony paintings in a show at the Pepin Art and Design Center in Pepin, WI. The show runs from May 14 - June 17 . Have lunch or dinner at the Harbor View restaurant if you go, it's fantastic!

Prairie burning


I found these last week out in our woods, all under one tree! It has been a great morel spring, early warmth, not buggy, and enough rain. Wild ramps, asparagus, rhubarb and morels, how can anyone get any painting done? Oh, did I mention the warblers are back?
