I used a few teaspoons of salt in this painting, which gives the ocean a glittery sheen. 

One Whale, 16 X 20 inches, acrylics and salt, pumice. January 2016.





This would be a great painting for a university's science department or maybe a kid's room.  It's a large painting and would look great on a big wall.

Three pieces of my art will be on display at the Community Keg House (http://www.communitykeghouse.com/) in Northeast, Minneapolis. The Keg House will have its grand opening Friday, January 16. Seven other artists will be also be featured. The Community Keg House is a great new tap house and it is an excellent venue for art, with high ceilings, beautiful walls and natural light, as well as 20 different locally-crafted beers.
