2013 Church Seasons Calendar

Advent Starry Night 2

Lakeshore Morning
These two pieces were chosen for inclusion in the Christian Seasons Calendar. This calendar isn't arranged by months, but rather by the liturgical seasons and each week has a listing of readings from the common  lectionary . Last year I was delighted to have two pieces chosen and this year I'm amazed to have two in again! This comes with pay and free calendars!

This piece was juried into the ISEA (International Society of Experimental Artists) annual show. This will take place in September in Boston. I've had pieces in 3 of the last 4 shows. This third acceptance earns me signature status in the ISEA!

This painting incorporates pictures of the patriarchs in my fathers' family. I used red spots to indicate the blood relation and also to make the painting a little less personal and more universal. Variations on the American flag design are also incorporated. The guys in the buggy are my great grandfather and his brother. They came from the Netherlands and started a cartage company in Chicago. The building was the offices. The company was Wieringa Brothers Cartage, but my dad and his brothers took over half and renamed it Columbia Cartage when the originators passed it on to them.
