"A Day with Gramps"
36"x24" Acrylic on Board
Not For Sale.
Gramps taught me many things in and about life. Golfing, hunting and how to be a good man - all were taught by example. I rarely have time to golf anymore, but I aspire to one day be revered like him and for 25 years I never missed a South Dakota Pheasant opener with him. It was never about the hunt, but about being with family and friends... a reunion of sorts. My gramps passed in 2014 (shortly after the completion of this painting), but family still gather for that one weekend - to remember those we've lost, and to enjoy the company of those we still have.

"Deke"
14"x11" Acrylic on Board
Sold by commission.
This commission was completed for a collector of my work. I enjoyed the challenge of this piece, as the reference photo of "Deke" did not include a bird in his mouth, and it was from a cell phone which made him appear more like a pixelated silhouette. The sheen and details, plus the pheasant were added.

"Custer State Park Buffalo"
14"x11" Acrylic on Board
Sold by commission.
I was asked for a sunset scene that looked like Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota. This scene is completely from my imagination, but is representative of the landscape in Custer State Park. I wanted the bison to appear strong and decided to depict him in an "up-hill" stance to show dominance. I also repeated the general shape of his body in other areas of the painting.

"Corner Post Ringnecks"
10"x18" Acrylic on Board
Private Collection.
Pheasants can disappear in any cover so it seems. I imagine shortly after this scene, all three of them ducked under the grass on the other side of the fence... never to be seen again.

Delta Waterfowl Donation
13"x18" Acrylic on Board
Private Collection.
This original was sold on live auction at a Delta Waterfowl banquet.

"On the Wagon"
7"x16" Acrylic on Board
Private Collection.
I love the texture of old wood, and this wagon made the perfect backdrop for a pheasant scene.

Sold - Duck Stamp Entries

I submit 2-3 duck stamp entries per year, mainly because feel that they force me to be meticulous in my craft. Although I have had success, I have fought the temptation to become an artist who focuses solely on these entries.
