For the serious collector

Jack's Masterpiece Wing

What is a Masterpiece? Who gets to decide? 

Well... I did give these questions some considerable thought and to me, the answer is simple.

This virtual suite is an arrangement of some of  my dad's works  that I consider excellent examples of him mastering this medium.

        'Light on the Forest Floor' the final project concluding John's achievement in securing a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree with Bemidji State University.

This is an actual location on Lake Plantagenet  south of Bemidji, Minnesota. The precise area is part of Camp Thunderbird, a traditional boys and girls summer camp with the lake itself separating the boys camp on the west side of Plantagenet from the girls camp on the east side. This particular site is found on the girl's side. A serene open area surrounded by evergreens, pauples, elms and oak  suitable for quiet reflection.

       This piece articulates an appreciation my father embraced when it came to even the most basic elements in nature. The creek, the shadows and the vibrant variations of the color green truly bring about a calm, warm sensation of peacefulness and tranquility  the longer it is viewed.
