Fewer and fewer of these places exist, so even more rare are the times when light and season come together to show us the spirit of these great old barns. This one shows "Michigan Stone" foundation brought to this northern location by glaciers of long ago.

The eerie call of the common loons echoed across Lake Bellaire in late May evening in North Michigan. This is a painting that has been in the planning for several months now. As we walked along the lake several deer darted out of the nearby woods and an owl hooted in the distance. As the loons glided into an inlet they left a trail of rippling white water behind. The quite of the evening was disturbed only by the sounds of the calling birds.

Recent travel took me to southern Illinois, so I’m always on the lookout for landscape and old barns. I am always surprised to find unique old textures and structures. I can’t even remember the exact location of this one since I got lost on country roads as I often do. It was between Tuscola and Urbana, Illinois in the corn and bean fields. I sometimes wonder where the particular hardware on these doors originated.

Painting can be more than just the subject. Here colors create a pattern of shapes, textures and movement.

Fall leaves are turning color after a first frost in Michigan. This year cold weather is coming slowly and color on the bike path explode with lots of contrast in red, green, blue and yellow. After first frost colors change rapidly, however these vines still show a whole range of colors

 Backyard Fruit on a Mantel

Fall is harvest time when beautiful fresh fruit and vegetables become available. In Michigan apples and pears were abundant this year. Backyard pear and apple trees drew lots of deer to steal low hanging fruit directly from the trees. On this mantle sit an apple and pear that escaped the deer in my backyard.

A pair of eagles landing on their nest in northern Michigan. This quite site is located in a remote wetlands area. This nest was moved from the local baseball field to this quite site located in a more remote area of the wetlands about a mile east of the town. Apparently the eagles have accepted the new location that gives them greater safety and protection.

This is another of the alphabet ABC paintings that I began some time ago. I’ve been on the lookout for a cat image and finally found a small cat sculpture I like. It’s a small antique pewter image of a cat stretching that fit into the idea I wanted to paint. There are two sets of Embossing Company blocks here and the lion is from a third set of even older blocks.
