  1. Nice bio by USPS guiding us to the horizon line.

  2. Lake Superior is the greatest of the Great Lakes and these are interesting interpretations.

  3. I was not familiar with this artist til I saw the stamps. I love all the colors.

  4. I didn't know this artist, and I love the bright coloured landscapes!
    I always envy artists who are able to paint/draw abstract. Although many people say about abstract art things like 'my-6-years-old-niece/nephew-can-do-this-too', I think creating abstract art very difficult to do. For that reason I even attended classes to learn it!.. But I didn't succeed, every work of mine turned out to be clearly figurative.
    So I have big admiration for this artist's works!
    Thank you for sharing!

  5. Thanks for all your comments!
    I wasn't familiar either, and the colours are stunning. I think the artist grasps and expresses the wonder of the landscape. Although I haven't ben there, alas.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
