Soft pastel on charcoal paper.  Rock in the Alaska Woods. Sometimes you see a very intentional rock sitting in the forest. A friend Caitlin Ena saw this in Alaska and posted a photograph. I saved it in my future art file for several years. I’m always noticing these in your face sculptures in the woods.

Riverview painting commissioned for bookcover

Down River Orange Glow by Carol Skinger

On Garrison Keillor’s radio broadcast  The Writer’s Almanac on August 20, 2015 he read from Paul Martin’s most recent book of poetry Floating on the Lehigh published by Grayson Books where my Riverview painting was commissioned for the cover. It is Garrison Keillor’s daily summary of poems, prose, and literary history. The publishing process? The poet himself searched images of paintings of rivers online arriving at my  website where  paintings of the Allegheny River are housed. Martin contacted me directly and made the introduction to his publisher Grayson Books who commissioned the use of the river painting he especially loved for the cover.

Contact me about licensing or commissioning one time use of my images.
