"AMES MILL "HOME OF MALT-O-MEAL, " NORTHFIELD MINNESOTA" Canvas Stretcher Size: 20H x 16W x 5/8 Deep Painted Plein Air in 2016 Signed front and back Gallery Wrapped and Ready to Hang All the years I camped and painted in the Western mountains and deserts, Malt-O-Meal was my go-to breakfast. Add a little peanut butter and some diced apple or banana and you have the perfect breakfast. So I think that it's kind of ironic that ten years later I find myself living in the town where it is made. This building is no longer a working mill, but the new factory isn't far away and on days when the breeze is right the whole town smells of breakfast cereal.
The river in the foreground is the Cannon River - it powered many of the early grain mills of the 1800's in Minn. This painting is on a sturdy commercially made stretcher and is painted around the sides (gallery wrapped), so it does not need to be framed. The stretcher is a little narrower than the ones I make myself, so framing it eventually might be a good idea. There are many layers of paint and the colors are fully saturated.
It will arrive wired and ready to hang. About Me I've been a full-time artist for 35 years.Through the years I've been in numerous solo and group shows, mostly in the West - Seattle, Mendocino, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Bisbee, Az. But also in the Midwest and South - Wisconsin (Lake Superior area), Chicago, and Atlanta. But of course, not every work in a show sells (oftentimes not even the best ones), galleries go out of business (they can even be more unstable than artists), the artist travels on... So besides brand new paintings I have an archive of unsold, maybe even never shown paintings. Art for sale here may have been made very recently.
Or, it may be 10 or more years old. I stand completely behind all of my work that is for sale, here, whenever it was created. And if you like it, that's all that should matter.
