The State Department has purchased four of my paintings for the American Embassy in Helsinki. The ones they chose are:
6 Gold Birches
(both under "Tree Paintings")
(see under "Paintings")
The art handlers have picked them up and packed them for overseas shipping. They should arrive there in a few weeks.
I am very happy to have my work where lots of people can see it!
I just closed a solo show at the Paige Wiard Gallery in Calumet. Small things: sketchbook drawings and animal sculptures (dolls!) things I do to entertain myself when I'm not doing large oil paintings. I downloaded a few of them in the category "animal sculptures." The ones not sold will stay at the gallery. Meanwhile I seem to be obsessive about continuing to make them. When they pile up too many I will try to sell them again.
I am still working on a series of large oil paintings of trees, which are taking their own time.
My studio is in an old elementary school, 801 North Lincoln Drive in Hancock. I love visitors! I am usually there but please call first: 906-370-3183. My hours are erratic.
