I've moved home and shop a dozen miles away just in time for what looks like a serious winter.

About

I walk out to meadows, shores and forests to see what I can find.

My late daddy (1911-2006) said he used to show me leaves when I was little enough to be carried around the woods and pastures. We lived in overgrown farm country, then later camped north of Lake Superior, staying there for weeks of each summer. So I grew up in two rural areas, with a strong sensitivity to plant forms and earth textures but a long-term naivete about complications among people out in the world.

I have a basic urge to let visual art and intimate word-portraits recommend nature to all the people in the world who have even a minimal inclination to cherish what has evolved alongside us. A world totally taken over by limitless numbers of people is neither viable nor worth trying to establish, since the earth is a closed system that does not grow. It ought to be apparent to everyone that earth, water and air have limits and can only dwindle as all our industries lay claim to more and more of it in a consumer, use-it-up capacity. No amount of political, economic or science fiction will prove this untrue. As to robotics, or artificial intelligence taking over for biological human beings to overcome our traditional failings and vulnerabilities I can make no comment, except to state my own fear and distrust of all that that trend may mean. But if we are really meant to replace ourselves with techno-replications driven by some standard of our own perfectibility, I only hope that we leave a living, biologically-rich and self-sustaining earth here for all the living things that seek to live on as the fabric of old Mother Earth, the Old World of species responsive to checks and balances that the mainstream of people today would prefer to ignore and deny. A beautiful, balanced earth can't be overrun with 'consumers' or it will get consumed down to a bitter core.

My cards and prints are offerings designed to broaden the marketplace for my watercolor/mixed media paintings to people who love them but want to make a quick inexpensive buy. I relish trying to recreate what the eye sees in looking at really wild country and the things that live there. What watercolor can't yield in detail I attempt in sharper media like ink or pencil.
