For fifteen years I traveled the Midwest, mostly by car to Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee.  I spent hours each week on the road, sometimes miles and miles between destinations. I, like many other working mothers spent a lot of time feeling guilty about working and being away. I decided to stop doing that, and instead draw on the inspiration of the beautiful scenery that surrounded me during those road trips. I am creating large landscapes based on the memory of theses places and the photographs I took, many times from the car window. This painting is a place in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  Maybe someplace between Escanaba and Marquette. It is an absolutely gorgeous part of the United States. I loved traveling there, the swampy areas after a rain were beautiful.  This is a small study of the larger landscape to come.
Thanks to my brother Larry for coming up with the name, it will be up to you to figure it out!
