The White River

A summer view of the White River near Hesperia, Michigan, USA.

A place on the White River near Hesperia, Michigan, just upstream from the M-20 Bridge; it’s an easy place to get in the water and looks as if there would be lots of trout, but I’ve never done very well here. The well-worn path through the woods indicates that more than a few fishermen wade this stream. Maybe they’ve already taken all the trout.

Another side of the story is that it’s a quiet, beautiful place to spend a summer afternoon just being.

Twig Pot

Twig pot turned from a Ruby Red Grapefruit log.

My first wood-lathe project – a twig pot turned from a Ruby Red Grapefruit log in the wood shop at Snow to Sun RV Resort in Weslaco, Texas. It was finished with a coat of boiled linseed oil and three coats of polyuerethane. Anyone want to buy a unique piece of art, signed by the artist, for, oh say, $1,000,000.00?

Manipulated close-up of a wildflower growing beside the driveway early February.

Stumbling through various Photoshop layers and process until I create something beyond the standard snapshot. This wildflower – still unidentified – is growing beside the driveway. It’s tiny, but the brilliant color pops it out from its surroundings. 
I love creating something that isn’t, but still representative of something that is.
