AutoKan Series


Quoted Series

Glacier Series

I selected Moments from three of my ongoing painting series, all dealing with moments in time. The AutoKan Series represents my growing memoir pictures, including Abbottholm, a farm where I lived when 16 and 17 years old, Town Board Meeting, reflecting my time in public office. From the Quoted Series I chose the last day in the life of a salmon, inspired by Stanley Kunitz, and inspired by another poet, William Butler Yeats, the Bee-loud Glade, a moment he would never know.  From my Glacier Series, started in  March 2020, I chose an imagining of a moment in the Finger Lakes, in this case, a moment 12,000 year ago.
