I started this painting more than two years ago and am at last beginning to see its outcome.
Today I’m checking the proportions and relationship between the wooden boat and the painted surface. Long way to go on each, but I’m very happy with how things are turning out.
I have a thing for fishing lures. I’m not sure why exactly… I don’t fish. Here’s some details from past #paintings. I use ashes and small seeds from our field for texture.

Here’s a quick Instagram tour of a 2’x2′ painting on panel in progress. I imagine this will take much of the winter to complete:
I had an amazing time with UWEC art students this morning. I loved every minute of it. I pulled no punches and was very straight with them about my experiences and what awaits them “out there” in the art world. I did my very best to encourage and inspire them, and to embolden them about their importance and worth. I care a lot for students and I wish them the very best.
My alma mater asked that I be a part of their current show, Tributaries: A Centennial Celebration of Art & Design Alumni now hanging in the Foster Gallery, UWEC through October 26.
