Reeds Lake Wetlands

Oil on canvas - 12" x 9"     This oil is one of several oils completed in 2008 using a limited palette of cobalt blue, cadmium red, cadmium yellow and white. This palette has been extensively used by prominent American artist Russell Chatham.  After seeing an exhibition of his works at Northwestern Michigan College a few years ago, I was challenged to give it a try. The results ranged from complete failure to a few that I was moderately happy with.  This painting is for sale.

Early Snowfall, Antrim County

Oil on canvas - 24" x 18"  It was early November and  heavy wet snow blanketed northern Michigan. While exploring the back roads with my sister, we came upon a cut sunflower field, orchard and stand of hardwoods that practically demanded to become a painting.  November and December will always be my favorite season to paint.
