“If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.”
– Edward Hopper 1882-1967
These pieces come and go to various shows and competitions. Some get sold, some get gifted, and some get painted on the backside. There are a few even lost. But if you’d like something…make me an offer

The challenge in “Looking Up” was to convey a backlit maple that was slightly wet
“One Cold Hand” – I spent the winter focusing on lighting and shadows. This was the best result. The dog found the glove in the park on a cold winter’s day.
“The Whistler” – Another favorite after studying shadows. This one from spotlighting efforts. This very loud teakettle was Ted’s – found at a thrift store. It’s marked “Mirro Company” on the bottom. Made in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
“The Empty Chair” – these cast shadows have to be seen to try to emulate. You can’t make them up. Strong afternoon sun makes the coolest shadows.
“Sanibel Sundown” is portraying lowlight, putting the sandy beach into darkness and the sandpipers making their individual shadows before all the light is lost – On Display at Madison Pyle Center
“Tulip Royalty” – This bunch displays backlighting – made from a lamp on a dreary February day. Tulips from Pick and Save – $5
From a team effort at a mural on the wall at Kirkland Medical Center
