Across the Meadow

Across the Meadow  On a field filled with native grasses and wildflowers, looked and felt like a great place to throw a blanket on the ground and have a picnic. I imagined cattle grazing here at some time but now it is just a quiet place to pause and enjoy the beauty.

Born and raised in the rich soil country of the Red River Valley of the North, I never tired of the beauty of the clean rows of new seedlings coming up, then the waving grain and then the golden grain swallowed up by the combine like a monster with a voracious appetite.

"Season is Soon Changing"  8x10 canvas panel  $275.00

Reflection on Reflections

A typical scene on one of our many lakes. I enjoy painting the quiet still water with the landscape reflecting in subtle colors in the water. There is a poetry in  this that I continue to enjoy.
