Acrylics

A collection of Acrylic Paintings inspired by our Midwest surroundings. Interesting trees, endless arrays of clouds and colorful skies, four distinct seasons, lakes, rivers, forests, hills and farms makes the Midwest my favorite subject.

  • Paintings are done on Studio or Gallery wrapped canvas with scenes continuing onto all four sides.

  • Commissions have been created on various surfaces, from driftwood to 33rpm LPs.

  • Requests for Midwest Locations are welcomed as well as your own special places.

Apostle Island Magic

The light brought the orange cliffs to life against the turquoise waters 16x16 Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas $360
