Kami Mendlik, “Red-Winged Black Birds Sing,” oil on panel, 28 x 16 in, available through the artist. Oil Painters of America 2022 Eastern Regional Exhibition, 10/6/2022 – 10/28/2022 at James R. Ross Fine Art in Indianapolis Indiana.

Kami Mendlik: “Red-Winged Black Birds Sing” was inspired by the marsh outside her studio window, where the red-winged black birds sing their songs.

“The Stream Runs Through It” was painted standing on the walking bridge her dad built crossing the stream that runs through her family’s farmland – the place where Kami grew up and learned a deep appreciation for the natural world that surrounds her.

“Autumn on The St Croix” painted at late light just after a slow canoe paddle on the river taking in the fall colors.
