Rough Sailing

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 16x20

This painting began as a cloud study, then a seascape, and finally, a sailboat painting. I had no particular location in mind ...could be anywhere. I could almost hear the snap of the canvas and the splash of the waves. seascape canvas prints

Morning Mist - Soo Line 1003

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 16x12

Autumn mornings in Wisconsin often begin with a damp fog until the sun burns it away. I used the hazy atmosphere to add drama to the appearance of the steam locomotive thundering into sight and belching smoke like a storybook dragon. $800.00

Train Crossing Soo Line 1003

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 20x16

The Soo Line 1003 steam powered train is still operating in Wisconsin, traveling around the state to bring this example of railroad history to the people. It is stored for viewing at the Wisconsin Automotive Museum in Hartford. One year, in conjunction with the Circus Parade, this engine stopped in the village of Eagle right in front of my home. A great photo opportunity! I plan to paint many more train scenes. Although this painting has been SOLD prints are availble.

Walking in the Rain

Original Painting - Acrylic on Canvas 20x16

I love a rainy night ...The rumble of thunder, wet pavement, wavy reflections, and the swish of tires from passing cars! The plan was to keep this painting loose and impressionistic.

Giants in the Mist

Original Painting - Acrylic on canvas 20x16

The Chrysler Building, an Art Deco skyscraper in New York, was the worlds' tallest building for 11 months before it was surpassed by the Empire State Building in 1931. This painting features the two architectural giants emerging from the mist and towering far above the crowded city below. These buildings were constructed during the Great Depression providing construction jobs for many workers and became symbols of pride for the American people in difficult economic times, (not unlike our current economic struggles).new york prints
