A STORY

Travel, photography and painting are my passions in life. Fortunately I have traveled to many wonderful places, always looking for that "perfect shot". The scenes I do will always freeze the memory in my mind with the story behind it. For example, the painting VIKING BURIAL GROUND is from an image I captured while visiting Denmark in 1996. Driving north through Jutland, we came across Lindholm Hoje, Denmark's largest Viking Age burial ground. The site contains some 700 graves dating from 400-1000 AD. The deceased were cremated at the gravesite, surrounded with stone in various forms. Men were buried in triangular and ship-shaped stone settings, while women's graves are oval and circular. While painting VIKING BURIAL GROUND, I couldn't help but imagine I may have an ancestor or two buried there! Every picture does tell a story, so please feel free to ask.
