53rd National Show Catalog, "No Place Like Home"


10” x 13.5” — Watercolor $350

My ancestors homesteaded property in Northern Illinois, and the family farm continued into the 1940s. The stories, photos and heirlooms handed to my mother and then to me. As I drive through the countryside, I notice the many farms that have fallen into ruin and neglect. When the sun shines on the ruin, I often stop, take photos, and share my impressions in watercolor paintings. …passing of an era told in watercolor.
