Paintings – oil on oak panels
These two oil paintings remember two native species I grew up with. By the time I was tromping through them as young boy (in the late 70′s and early 80′s) the rural ditches and creeks were rapidly becoming polluted by a rise in industrial farming chemicals. The dinosaur-like snapping turtle, though, didn’t seem affected. I ran into snapping turtles on a daily basis. And above me, always, were native red tailed hawks. Both are for sale through my purchase link.
…and a left-handed acoustic guitar I painted (the color tiles around it are recycled countertop samples salvaged from an out of business carpet store).
