For Art-Prize in Grand Rapids I am working overlooking the Grand River in downtown G.R..  I am located on a lookout in front of the Meijer Broadcasting Center, and I am part Of the Grand Valley State University venue. 

Coming up the second weekend in October is Gallery Stroll.  I hope you can all visit Saugatuck for this wonderful early Autumn art event.

Hello!  I hope you are all having a wonderful Spring.  All sorts of weather this Spring: cold, rain, humid heat, and crystal like glass clear, cool days.  I have been painting in a field of Phlox, though a lady learned in botany tells me she thinks this incredible field might actually be a field of 'Dame's Rocket', which , frankly, looks like Phlox to me.  Next Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19, these paintings will be on display in my studio.  I hope you can stop in.  We're open all summer, every day, 10 til 8.
