My paintings today. Every inch of the canvas is given the same importance. I’m painting with great purpose and curiosity. I’m still looking to capture a feeling of a glimpse. Just enough information to convey the feel of the space but not so much as to define the space in detail for the viewer. I’ve always wanted to find ways for the viewer to participate and bring their history to a painting and see what they see and feel what they feel. As always everyone sees something different. Where I see beauty others may see darkness and struggle. That is wonderful.

My progress as a painter is connected to my development as a person. I’m more comfortable on this earth than ever. How interesting that one’s comfort and confidence is reflected in their paintings. I suppose this is why my lines are deep and grounded, my color is full and building, and composition is complicated yet balanced.

The paintings I’m working on now feel right for me, at this place and time. I continue to seek beauty and quiet in my work. Where I find beauty and quiet and share that vision.

Beautiful

11” x 14” Oil on canvas, 2020
unframed

Last summer my family spent a couple of weeks in the Rocky Mountains. Beautiful is the one word that comes to mind. I’m looking for ways to paint something beautiful. Here I’m looking at color and how I apply paint to explore this idea of beauty that I want to show.

Breathe

4′ x 4′
acrylic on canvas

I spent a summer painting outside under trees. It really changed how I paint. My work softened and my color pallet evolved and grew. I became less rigid and the result was works like this. Go outside.

Change yourself

4′ x 4′
acrylic on canvas

This painting is about standing out from the crowd. I painted it many years ago. Standing out from the crowd means different things overtime for me. It used to be doing something that got noticed. Now, it is more personal, dealing with personal growth – the idea of changing yourself to change the world comes to mind.

Cookie

When I look at things with a different lens the world and painting really opens up. I painted over this one many times, then, I looked at it for. blocks of important elements and then, finally, I worked for me.

Fish house

One of my favorite things is a winter lake dotted with ice houses. The contrast of the frozen lake is wonderful when the dots of life and fishing are present. Beautiful.

Goodbye fruit, hello friend

4′ x 4′
acrylic on canvas

This painting was part of the series that I painted outside. I stood under a tree, leaned my canvases up against an elm tree and painted. Makes sense that I painted trees. I love being out under the trees.

Home

18″ x 24″
oil on canvas.

This painting feels like what I can’t say very well. I’ve been reflecting heavily on what home is recently for a variety of reasons. What home is to me has always been a hard concept to grasp. I’ve never felt grounded or connected to one place. So, I’m realizing home is not a place as much as a family. My search for home is now finding comfort for family. When my family can sit and melt into the ground and stop and sit that feels like home.

Green has become the color I’m drawn to today. I’m painting with so much instinct right now is maybe the best way to put it. To grow and learn as a painter I must be open to surprising myself, try new colors and new lines. To grow as a painter and not remain stagnant and stale I feel a need to renew and let the old go and nurture the new. What I’m surprised by is how often I forget that letting go of the old is so helpful and important to embracing the new.

Imaginative play time

30″ x 30″
Oil on canvas

This painting is the contrast between the solid structure on the right and the mess of color on the bottom. I love it when a child takes out toys and plays with them in a way that wasn’t intended, that is what this painting reminds me of.

January hike in Minnesota

4′ x 4′
Acrylic on canvas

Many years ago I hiked with a group of 6th graders at Eagle Bluff Environmental Learning Center in Southeastern Minnesota. It was the coldest day. The beauty of the landscape, while 6th graders hiked in sub-zero wonder, was an amazing experience.

Journey

3’ x 4’
oil on canvas.

This was painted a couple of years ago. However, today it takes on a different meaning. I painted like this to show individuals on a journey and passing through time. Showing how we change over time. Today, it looks more like social distancing. How we are exaggerating our personal space for safety. For me, it is still about personal journeys.

Let’s go

30” x 80”
acrylic on wood door

This painting is about the energy in the city. This was painted several years ago and looked at human interaction. Today, it seems like a history lesson about the way things used to be.

Living in a dream

4′ x 4′
acrylic on canvas

This painting was inspired by the idea of living a dream. To be living in your dream to me is like floating – free from inhibitions like a bubble floating around on the breeze.

Look

30” x 80” Oil on canvas, 2020

Lots of thoughts going on with this one. I’m also a teacher and I work with kids who live with a lot of fear in their lives. It’s nice when that fear is set aside and they give a thoughtful look. There is so much hope behind the fear, just look.

Minneapolis Pandemic

18″ x 24″
oil on canvas.

What can be said? This painting for me is a self-reflection of my role in my city, state, country, and world. I’m an artist and I paint. I stand with these protests and I stand with people speaking out for what they deserve and must have as human rights and dignity. There is beauty in the passion, in a crowd working toward a common goal. There is self-reflection that I need to spend time on to consider what role or roles I’m taking in supporting people asking for their human rights.

Monster

4′ x 4′
acrylic on canvas

These urban city paintings dealt with confronting fear among the masses. For me, it is dealing with anxiety and inhibitions. The monster is fear and the overall composition, the people living their lives are all confronting their fears and moving forward.

She is wise in the park

12” x 12” Oil on canvas, 2020

When my daughter was little we would go new places all the time. She often had that typical child’s glare and scowl mixed as she took in new environments – it is wise to be skeptical of new things.

The cloak of that clever concern

30” x 30”
oil on canvas

I’ve always used this cape to show standing out from the crowd. My meaning behind this has changed over the years. I was never really a superhero fan. It is more of a symbolic way of showing people who stand out. People who have a presence. People who are naturally followed by others – usually those who are humble by this are the most intriguing.
