An old building sitting alone in a field, long abandoned. No other structures to be seen. There are the remains of old tire ruts near the doors. A tractor shed?

I am in my new studio space. After two months of house selling and hunting, with all of my materials packed away, I am finally able to see my paints and brushes again.





A wonderful Minneapolis art collector and friend who recently purchased the painting "Dream House".

Old Farm House. 30 X 40. Oil paint sticks and oil pastels. June 2015.








This is another painting I have worked on and off for a year or more. Kind of trippy.

 

Two Cats. 18 X 24. Spray paint, oil pen, acrylics. May 2015.





This painting has had a few different titles. It is a painting that I thought was finished a year ago, then I worked on it some more last month, and at that time I felt it was finished. But last night I looked it over and said to myself, "That sucker is boring," so I went at it again.

 

Based on what's going on in the painting, I renamed it Augenblick, which is a German word which means "decisive moment" or "moment of clarity."

 

Augenblick. 18 X 24. Oil pastels, oil pens. May 2015.





Four Women Looking. 20 X 16. Oil pastels on canvas, framed. 2013.

This painting won an award a couple years ago.
