One Hundred and More Views of Cedar Creek ESR

 Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve is a 5,600 acre wonderland where the father of modern ecology did his research in the 1930's. The land is owned by the University of Minnesota and scientists and students from around the world come here to do research. Walking through this restricted and mostly undeveloped area I saw potent possibilities for landscape paintings. This led to a project intially called One Hundred and More Views of Cedar Creek ESR, which will culminate in an exhibit and a book produced by CCESR. However, I think that even 100 views is way too few to do justice to the variety and seasonal changes that occur here. I would like to do 1,000 but will end up settling somewhere in between.  This page gives thumbnail views of some of the images in this ongoing project. The Majority of the paintings are 8" x 10" or 9" x 12" and are available for purchase, prices vary with most in the $350 to $700 range. A few are not for sale. The best thing to do if interested is to contact me ( with a description of one or several, like this: " Seven rows down, third from the left, with the light at the end of the path". I will reply with the title, size, and price.
