Ready to Hang

This painting is based on a photo I took in the Badlands of South Dakota. "Erosion" is about loss and sadness, but it's also about the joy of living and being part of nature. The rhino pictured is going extinct, but the human spirit lives on in the most dire of cirumstances. In fact, this couple is having a lovely time despite being in a barren if beautiful landscape. This painting is acrylic on canvas, framed in a bamboo frame and ready to hang.

Many years ago in the frozen north (Minnesota) I was a talented child drawer. That led to a love of painting that I have had all of my life. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a MN university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors but I also do occasional oil paintings. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I sometimes work in a series but ultimately paint what inspires me. Originally from MN, I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because that's often when the magic happens.
