Hello Autumn. Hello All. May this find you safe and well.

Lots of inspiration from all of the artists here in the Driftless...

​Below, a few glimpses of what's been happening in and around the studio.

John has set up a table in a corner of his studio, where he brings in found treasures from the woods and wetlands to photograph.  Sometimes they become part of a piece, and other times they launch his imagination into stunning perspectives on the world we inhabit.

Pamela has been cutting up unfinished paintings and drawings.  Then, like Humpty Dumpty, she puts them together again, altogether different, strangers in a strange land.  Wielding a jigsaw, she is also creating shapes with wood, echoing the paper cut-outs, and then some.

Meanwhile, outside the studio...the bounty and the beauty!
