These works are created exclusively for the Prairie Oak Artisans gallery in Warrenville, Illinois and Mineral Point, Wisconsin. They reflect the artistís love of wetlands and ocean fronts. At present the focus is on deep moving waters that express a fascination for the sensuous character of water and a suggestion of contemplation on its essential role in supporting life. That life is represented by the emerging water lilies. Additionally water lilies have an associated meaning, Purity of Heart, which the artist feels brings a somewhat romantic and mystical sense to the scene: Otherwise, a reality neither apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intellect.
