Welcome to my art blog where I post recent photos of my work and journal about my life as an artist. Although I spent my early childhood in the Catskill Mountains or New York, I now live and work in Tulsa Oklahoma. It is from my early life in the mountains that I developed a love of the natural world which now includes vast prairies and endless skies. My goal is to see and respond to the beauty that I find around me with a paint brush, paint and canvas.
Canoeing the Boundary Waters Margaret Aycock oil on canvas
Once upon a time when we were in our 20s we took a wonderful trip to the boundary waters between Minnesota and Canada. This painting was inspired by that time we spent so far away from civilization in such a quiet place.... we finally decided that we would throw back any fish that wasn't 12 inches long, we were catching so many!
