Zeus and Io, Io Tells Her Story







Zeus Io, Io Tells Her Story Zeus Io.  Io was, in Greek mythology, a priestess of Hera in Argos. Seduced by Zeus, he changed her into a heifer to escape detection.

The Vodoun Spirit







The Vodoun Spirit Oil on wood, 48 inches by 24 inches, 2014 While on a visit to Haiti in the late 1980’s, I happened to be in a market selling locally carved wooden images of Vodoun deities and animals.  As is typical, all were painted in brilliant colors, except for one which really stood out. I purchased the unpainted carving which became the model for this painting. There is more to this story because a friend who was with me purchased two of the painted statues.  At the end of our trip, my friend returned to England and I came home to Minneapolis. About […]
