Here in Maine we are surrounded by erratics, rocks, some as big as cars, deposited by departing glaciers. They are not part of the original landscape yet they are part of the total landscape. These paintings are my "erratics", not part of my common landscape, but part of my complete landscape.
The Bird Project
The Bird Project is a collaboration with my friend, Dianna Ammons Johnson. Dianna is an avid birder, photographer, and poet. She wrote the haiku descriptions of each bird. These works are not yet for sale, but will be displayed and sold at the Breakwater Gallery in Eastport, Maine during July 2019. The exhibit will feature ten of Dianna's photos in tandem with my gold leaf/oil painting version of each bird. Sculptor, Michael Morse will provide some three-dimensional interpretations of the birds.
