Artist Statement
"Both my large field paintings, 'Ojibwe Sunrise' and 'Splintered Hemlock," were created on Madeline Island in Wisconsin over a one-week period and just 20 feet from each other. This particular area is abundant with hemlock and was once Ojibwe tribal land and continues to hold a strong spiritual atmosphere. 'Ojibwe Sunrise' was painted with the eastern morning sun blasting through the trees and reflecting off the lake. Despite the complexity of painting large works en plein air in a forest interior, as well as the scourge of mosquitoes and ticks, it was a peaceful and magical experience."
