B.J. Wentkers on a Rainy Night

Original Acrylic on Canvas 12x16 SOLD

This is a painting of B.J. Wentker's Restaurant, in Burlington, Wisconsin, owned and operated by my daughter, Tanya Peterson and husband, Chef Eric Peterson. I may be biased, but many others have said that they had the best meal of their lives in this first class dining venue.Contemporary cuisine in a historic setting, says it all. The original painting is displayed in the dining room of the restaurant, but Canvas Giclees' are available in a limited edition of 25. Image size 16x12 for $150.

Sunset Sky Painting, "Spires in Silhouette"

Spires in Silhouette

Original Acrylic on Canvas 20x16

I love to contrast buildings against the brilliant colors of the sky at sunset or sunrise. Even man's grandest architectural creations seem paltry when shown against the glories of nature. Available from the artist for $950.

Painting Sunset Reflections

Flood Stage on the River

This is the finished painting that was begun as a demonstration for "The Gathering", an artist's group in Burlington, Wisconsin. The submerged tree reminded me of the flooding we experienced on the Fox River two years ago. Available from the artist for $950.
