Seven Sisters
Seven Sisters

Original - Size 36"x48"
$3,950
(prints available)

After several years of encouragement from several people, I am happy to capture this road south of St. James, Ne. The minimum maintenance road in this scenic area of northeast Nebraska gets its name from its seven hills in a mile stretch. Unfortunately there is not a spot where all seven can be seen at once but this was my favorite view on Seven Sisters Road.

West Bow Creek runs through our farm and east towards Fordyce, Ne. One day as I was heading there, I couldn't help to stop on the bridge to view this scene that so inspired me. The title came to me as I posted it on facebook asking for name suggestions. The humor in me liked "Five O'clock Somewhere".

A Quiet Place

Original is SOLD
Prints available

St. Helena, Ne is a historic beautiful place in Northeast Nebraska, just a 20 minute drive away. One would be surprised that I would paint such a scene but I felt a special quietness when I visited. Some of the earliest settlers that came up the Missouri River are buried in this secluded place. At one time the river came so close that it took part of the cemetery away down the river. Civil War veterans are buried here. I appreciate the history of this peaceful spot and honor those buried here as one does anytime they visit a cemetery.

While heading west through Nebraska, we came upon the Hwy. 70 and 281 intersection just north of Bartlett, NE. A gravel road heading west at that intersection gave me reason to have Jeff stop so we could soak in the beauty of the Cottonwoods lining the road.

This scene located in Northeast Nebraska near St. Helena caught my eye one bright morning. A gate closed this trail off to my wanderings and held signs that made it clear no trespassing was allowed but I was able to capture the scene from "beyond the gate".

Growing up near Crofton, I remember scouting for Christmas trees with my family in the nearby wooded area along Lewis and Clark lake. In 1989, a group of golf enthusiasts with a vision, developed the terrain into one of Nebraska's most scenic golf courses. Although you can view the lake from many spots on the Crofton Lakeview course, whole #5 with this amazing view to the west, has become the signature hole.

This is a view from my gallery window looking east. One Sunday morning as I was getting ready for church, the sunrise made me stop and run down to the creek for closer observation and photos. Once I finished painting it, our daughter Jenna revealed to me all the particular bends in the creek that she gave special names while playing there as she grew up. I had no idea it would mean so much to her.

This 1920's bridge over Bow Creek which runs through our farm was a popular cottonwood shaded stopping spot. For a time the beavers had this area dammed up enough to allow us to canoe from our home to the bridge. Unfortunately, a recent flood has taken the bridge and one of the large cottonwoods away.

Marne Creek runs through Yankton S.D. While on the Auld-Brokaw trail I ventured off the path just east of Pine Street where I was intrigued by the old concrete bridge. I learned that the rocks in the foreground were placed there years ago, to dam the creek for ice skating in the winter.

I always had the desire to paint our quiet Country Church in Constance, Ne. After the September 11 attacks I felt that I needed to paint a patriotic scene and it was then that Jeff suggested I finally paint our church. I made the flag prominent with Jeff's Dad, Walter in front with our son, Cole, to represent the older and future generations. It has become my favorite piece of work.

Lewis and Clark on the Missouri -- 1804 is my vision of the way the land and Missour River would have looked during the time that Lewis and Clark had their council with the Sioux Indians along Calumet Bluffs near Yankton, SD on August 29, 1804. Through research and Captain Lewis' drawings, I came up with this image depicting the trees, plants and bluffs where present day Lewis and Clark Lake exists. I wanted to capture the vastness of the area compared to the vessels of Lewis and Clark.
