Growing up along the banks of Lake Erie in Ashtabula, Ohio my wild place was always the beach. The big oak tree, the lift bridge, the view of the harbor, the railroad yards, quiet tide pools, the scent of rain before a storm, sitting on the pier watching the moonrise, sailing, these are the blood-memory landmarks of my childhood. The lake expresses many moods in its many seasons. The abstract frozen ice caps of winter’s crust melts into spring storms, then summer’s warm sun, followed by November’s howling menace. How to paint one gray sky as it is? I no longer live beside the lake, but every trip back, I always reserve a few quiet hours to go walk the beach alone. My paintings in one way or another speak to my circle of quiet. I hope you find something in them that speaks to yours. Great Lake is a tribute to my family and the community that raised me. My currency of memory I spend on you with humble gratitude.
