Kinnick Stadium



A friend asked me to donate a painting to a children’s cancer charity. The charity is based in Iowa and holds an annual gala with a silent auction. They auction off a lot of University of Iowa and Iowa State sports memorabilia. Here’s what I came up with.

Spring, The Lagoons


And the fourth in my seasonal series. The lagoons in my hometown where the trees blossom in spring and the ducks and geese wait for people to toss them bread.


Fall, Market Street Bridge

Summer, Central Park, Ottumwa

Summer - ottumwa central park

This is a painting of a park in the downtown of the town I grew up in, Ottumwa, Iowa. I’m hoping to do a series of four paintings based on the four seasons and featuring landmarks from around town.

By the way, this painting was inspired by a great photo I found on Flickr:

I encourage you to check out Kate’s other work, she’s got a great eye.
