"Middle America"

"Middle America" 5x10 acrylic
I get a kick out of trying new things with my art. This is not the typical "Bortz" painting, but a pretty cool piece nonetheless. This is the last of my minis for the History Meets the Arts show in Gettysburg (June 13-15). One more big one and I'll be all set.

The Bounty of Spring

Like a lot of outdoor types, I like to occasionally harvest a bit of the seasonal bounty the land (and water) has to offer... especially if it means a chance to cook an outstanding meal! I'm always on the lookout for morels the first couple of weeks of May. Most times they're not easy to find, but very much worth the effort. Last night the morels were coupled with freshly caught rainbow trout, both sautéed in a bit of olive oil with a dash of lemon on the fish. A couple of ice-cold beers were also required... one while cooking and the other while eating. It was terrific!

Another Birds In Art Flight Begins!

My recent painting "Five Below" has been accepted into the 2013 Birds In Art exhibit! What an outstanding start to the day!!! I can't wait to get back to Wausau in September to catch up with all my BIA friends. Woo hoo!
