At long last, I am getting around to upgrading this website. My fellow artist Sarah Snavely offered her assistance, and I jumped at the chance. It will be good to have things more current, but it might take some time to get everything figured out. Stay tuned for the latest additions and revisions.

Here’s another photo of the magnificent landscape near Lovell, Wyoming.
I worked on “Dakota October” this morning and my “Dakota Grasslands Dream” this afternoon, and they’re coming right along. There were revised note cards to pick up, new sunflower prints at the Post Office, poster redos arriving via UPs, and studio visitors to break up the day.
I moved one of my sunflower drawings that is not quite finished into my office, just to add some cheery color for a while. It’s also that time of year when I’m thinking about note cards, brochures, portfolios and books I want to create, and prints I’d like to order. “Sunjoy” with Note Cards
I’m sharing the garden with grasshoppers and bees these days, and crickets are doing their best to keep me company in the house. The flowers are still bright and beautiful, though, and these are some of the finest hours of the year. Here’s a shot of the garden on this Sunday morning. Sunday Morning, August [...]

The sunflowers continue to grow at an absolutely astonishing rate. The first bud began to open yesterday, giving me a glimpse of the beauty yet to unfold. I was even inspired to paint a sunflower design on a new cornhole game set that my father made. The First Sunflower Bud to Open Sunflowers on July [...]
There’s a new art book available, Georgia O’Keeffe: An American Perspective by Lauris Morgan-Griffiths. Through the miracle of the Internet, Amazon notified me of the release date, which was April 1st. I ordered a copy this morning, and they were already low on stock, but getting more soon. What a life-enhancing combination, the Internet and [...]
It was a beautiful but cold Sunday here on the Northern Plains, and I filled the hours with football games on T.V. and sunflower drawings on my easel. I plan to make some progress on another badlands image after supper. Sunglow
Here are some of my favorite sunflower photo images so far, along with their new titles. I still have quite a few original files to explore and experiment with, but there is plenty of drawing material here, I’m sure.
