The State Department has purchased four of my paintings for the American Embassy in Helsinki.  The ones they chose are:


6 Gold Birches

Patchwork Birches

(both under "Tree Paintings")


Ghost Fish

(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.
