2008 Minneapolis Institute of Arts Exhibition

These paintings and studies were painted periodically since January 2001 to help develop visual memory, to paint diverse materials and objects and to create a body of work which could be used in larger, historical paintings.  The soul of an era can be seen in its productions and in time, I painted them just for the pure enjoyment of it and for the connections they provided to their times and original artisans. See photos of the event.
