Example of a 11 x 14 inch print (room mock-up)
Autumn Grass In Utah
Growing up in a small rural town in Wisconsin has had a very strong influence on my work. There is a sense of pride that comes from living in the farm belt, a sense of pride for country and for hard work. That hard work is what made this country great and each of us felt we had a part in building it.

During my childhood Holmen Wisconsin was so small that it still had a general store with the wood floor. I can remember the creaking boards as we would walk from shelf to shelf. There really wasn't any "isles" there wasn't enough room. Later Holmen had a large population boom and the old general store has since become a distant memory.

Tire swings, old Ford pickup trucks, tractors and hay bails conjure a sense of nostalgia for me.
Photographs capture my memories and make them a tangible pieces of expression. But while I love to capture rural USA, I am also attracted to the industrial boom of yesteryear and the beautiful cityscapes that sprung from it. Many of those too have since gone; either forgotten or replaced. Old buildings, Rusted Cars Abandoned Factories; in the right light or darkness they take one last breath and I capture it.

This eclectic mix creates a unique collection of photographs that depict Americana.

What have been up to? Check it out:

If you love this giveaway and would like to see more please leave a comment. Also if you would like to see a specific item as a giveaway, let me know. I definitely consider requests. Lastly if you love this giveaway please spread the word.  After all I am hosting it to get more traffic and if it works you will see more :)  Good luck everyone!

Co-hosting You're the Star Blog Hop Home Week

With just days away from Christmas I am hoping everyone has their Christmas Shopping just about done.  Nothing worse than that last minute scramble.  That's when we fine ourselves gifting tubs of popcorn and shaving cream. LOL  But I have to admit that I did like those fancy decorated popcorn tins and especially if they contained caramel corn.  Actually has been a while; can someone send me a popcorn tin please! :)
I am excited to see what everyone has been working on this week.
But first I would like to share from my blog last week:
