My late brother Jim Curtis Solberg had a quiet unassuming way about him. Sickly as a child, he turned to nature for his solace. He could observe the micro world of insects for hours on end. He collected all manner of fascinating and colorful bugs trading with others throughout the world. Working quietly in the solitude of his bedroom laboratory, he painstakingly catalogued, pinned and labeled each creepy-crawly with perfect tiny hand lettering on microscopic tags.

 

He had a career as a Science teacher but his patience and quiet respect for the natural world allowed him later in life to capture remarkable intimate scenes with his lens. The legacy of animal portraits he left are a great source for my paintings and a constant reminder of him. The expression captured on this ground hog is pure Jim. The addition of the candy corn is mine.

Red dot = original has sold, but is available as a giclée
