The other day, I was going through Grayling, and saw that my artwork is now up at the AuSable Artisan Village gallery. They did a really nice job with the exhibit, and there are some incredible artists there, as well as being genuinely nice people. Plus, the coffee is good – a huge plus forContinue reading “AuSable Exhibit”

It will be in Rogers City, and I have been busy getting prints ready, framing paintings, printing fine art cards and taking care of all the tasks to prepare.

Today, I also delivered prints and painted birdhouses to a gallery in Harbor Springs. Below areContinue reading “Getting ready for new exhibit”
The Family Complement: Acrylic Painting
I saw some sandhill cranes with gray plumage several months ago, and decided to create a painting that highlights the complementary tones between their gray-blue plumage and the rust colors of the autumn grasses. “The Family Complement”, acrylic, 16 X 20 inches.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah
I want to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah. This is a season when we think about the true Light of the World: Yeshua HaMeshiach, who was born 2000 years ago. This is what gives hope in a time when things can appear dark in our world: that He has overcome theContinue reading “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah”
A Year of Birds 2022: November
Part 1 During my hike today at the beginning of the month, the bay is silent compared to the almost constant background chatter of small tweets, whistles and the high “kews” of the yellow legs that are heard during the summer. When I went into town, I saw one of the few birds that hasContinue reading “A Year of Birds 2022: November”
Bunnykins in the Grass
This summer, I came across Bunnykins (the young rabbit that visits my feeder in the wintertime). He was sitting in the grass by the side of the road, looking sleek and happy. I knew it was bunnykins due to his coloring, and the fact that he was not shy at all when I walked near,Continue reading “Bunnykins in the Grass”
Kingfisher: Acrylic painting
I have been very busy with work and getting for an art fair next week, but I did finish a painting of a kingfisher. This was done in acrylic, and is based on a sighting in Presque Isle several weeks ago. There is a marsh near the lighthouse where these birds hang out during theContinue reading “Kingfisher: Acrylic painting”
Shiny Cormorant: Acrylic Painting
I had fun painting this cormorant; after I created his body using a mix of ultramarine and umber to create a rich black, I used gold paint mixed with sienna and blue to create the shiny feathers on his back. I also used some opalescent paint in the water for a bit of extra shine.Continue reading “Shiny Cormorant: Acrylic Painting”
Sparrows on a Fence
I painted this in acrylic a few months ago. My emphasis was on the shadows and lights. I used my typical palette to create this painting.
Nocturne on Lake Huron: oil painting
I love painting various types of light, and different types of day. This painting is inspired by how beautiful Lake Huron and its inlets are in the evening, when the water is a symphony of blues and silvers. The painting is of a great egret silhouetted on the lake. I used my typical palette (ultramarineContinue reading “Nocturne on Lake Huron: oil painting”
Great Egret Fishing: Acrylic Painting
I love egrets, and chose to paint this one hunting and catching a frog in the marsh. This was done in acrylic with my normal limited palette.
