John Culik, "Big Farm"
I belive John Culik was born in 1926 in Joliet, Illinois. He attended art school in Boston and is predominantly known as a printmaker, who specializes in landscapes and nature scenes of rural Illinois and the town of Joliet.
Thank you! The two scenes that I bought are of farmland.
I have 2 etchings from an estate of a noted San Diego Architect - he knew John Culik in the 1950's in Illinois - I have one modernist piece and one traditional (both etchings) very interesting - I think his modernist phase was short lived.
Thanks for the update!
I just bought an etching at the Goodwill for $5.99!! Called "Suburbia" and it needs a frame, but I love etchings and couldn't pass it up. Luckily I could call my daughter and she could look up the artist!

A Big, Beautiful Harvest Salad with Delicata Squash and Kale
Zucchini Chips 4 Ways - The Copper Collective-tried salt and vinegar, and parm. Did not use bread crumbs. Must have sliced too thin because 30 mins was way too long. Keep an eye on them. Great for a chip craving!

Radish sandwich with ricotta and thyme. ~ i don't care for Ricotta cheese, but i would use cream cheese with dill, Italian Seasoning, or Ranch dry mix. Love radishes!
