The Artist's Proof is considered more valuable because of the size of the edition (Quantity of 25), and the quality of materials used in the printing process. In this case that means acid free paper and pigment based inks, giving customers peace of mind that the print won't yellow or fade over time.
The official 2018 Hockey Day MN painting is here! This gift commemorates a once in a lifetime experience and celebrates the tradition of outdoor hockey in Minnesota.

Half of all proceeds are donated to the St. Cloud Youth Hockey Association!

Acrylic - Plein Air
This is the view of Seberger Park from our back yard. When our son Jack was born I still wanted to get out and plein air paint -I just didn't get very far! Having a young child in the home affects your range! The energy of spring is what I wanted to capture. It was palpable, I could feel it in the warmth of the light, the leaves starting to appear on trees, and in the buzz of activity at the park. Summer is just around the corner, and after a long hard winter in MN, it feels good.
