Reproduction Prints of Watercolors
Lake Cottage
The original water color of "Lake Cottage"  was painted in 1998 and is the property of the Basin Harbor Club and on view in the club's main dining hall. Our youngest son is the model for this work which depicts Lake Champlain & New York state as seen from Basin Harbor, VT. The harbor is illustrated in the wall paper pattern & VT's state flower is decorating the rug. It is human nature to stare at the surface of the water & a child's nature to dream of what lies below the surface. Our beloved sea monster, as I imagine it (an evolutionary accident part fish part amphibian and part reptile), lurks large enough for it's tail to break the surface while it's head skims the bottom with a Bullhead Fish.

Saint George
The original watercolor of "Saint George" was painted in 1998 and our youngest is the model. The "Dreams of Children" is a theme which I love to explore. Our boys loved playing dress up and "Saint George and the Dragon" was a favorite book of theirs. Walt Whitman's line ("There was a Child went forth every day, and the first object he looked upon, that object he became")completes the concept that a child given an enriching environment filled with high ideals and standards can then grow, make his contributions and eventually gain his reward.

Common Milkweed
 
This image's subjects and colors illustrate more than the obvious.  I found the milkweed to be a paradoxical subject. Our field is filled with them and when they bloom their scent resembles the lilly of the valley. It is a very beautiful weed.
   The fluid in the milkweed contains toxins that are poisonous, this is why the monarch butterfly lays her eggs on it. The larva eats the toxins and as a result is protected by the toxins, becoming poisonous to their predators. Their yellow, white & black stripes (represented in the border of the image) warn of the poison. The monarchs in turn are protected by the same toxins (guaranteed to give a bird a bad belly ache) and warn of them with their bright black & orange pattern.
    In this image, however, the monarch's orange is instead a deep blood red. The reason being that for centuries the fluid of the milkweed has been used to cure blood ailments in humans. In the milkweed the red veins in the leaves and black lines in the monarch call to mind the blood veins of humans.
