Cherry Staircase

I started this painting over a year ago but it lacked something. I took it up again and spent another 20 hours on it. It’s a memory that won’t leave me, a place with personal significance. I have not attempted architectural accuracy: instead I’ve given it a cubist perspective; distorting relationships and light sources. I’m happy with it now. It conveys peacefulness and confusion at the same time.

It is oil on canvas, 41″ x 53″ and comes in a refurbished frame. I will sell it for $1300.00 including tax, shipping and frame.



Black Bear Walking with a Log

This bear was seen hauling a log in the forest. My painting is based on someone else’s photo but no credit was available.  Since I take hikes in northern Michigan forests every chance I get,  I saw this as a special picture,  one that I wanted to spend some time with. I added forest floor detail and another viewer hidden in the trees. I hope this will appeal to any forest lover. The painting is 16″ x 20″, oil on canvas. I will sell it for $280 unframed. I can have it framed for a total of $380.
