If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

About this image:

The high water on the Great Lakes has been in the news recently as well as photos of current challenges at Fishtown in Leland, Michigan. That got me thinking about the fun we had there last summer. The water in Lake Michigan was rather high then – dangerously high this winter. Current news photos are showing water at the bottom of the docks not a foot below as shown in the photo above. The water was so clear that we could see a few small fish darting about, hiding below the nets.

Michigan folks are resilient. Summer 2020 should be a very active season once again thanks to the continuing enthusiasm of the Fishtown Preservation Society that was established in 2001 to promote and preserve the historical and fishing heritage of Fishtown.

A post and photo essay can be found at the MICHIGAN  tab. For viewers, and myself, I created a tab QUICK INDEX. There you will find sections listed by interests such as Arts, Beaches, Driving Tours, Fun for Kids, Outdoors, etc. Most travel posts are based on travel in the Midwest and South – within 500 miles of Cincinnati – although some range BEYOND REGIONAL.


Recently I launch a more phone friendly web site linhardt-art.com for my paintings and photography. My painting studio is located at the  Loveland Artist Studios on Main; photography happens as I travel and when light and shadow have a story to tell. A long-time member of the Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry, in 2018 I joined the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati. I am maintaining this web site for blogs on art, books, and travel, primarily posted in this center section with references and links as appropriate.


“Money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think.

Family is important. So are friends.

Envy is toxic.  So is excessive thinking.

Beaches are optional.  Trust is not.  Neither is gratitude.”  Eric Weiner, The Geogrphy of Bliss
