Yes, he was born and raised in Ludington. He did many nature paintings/sketches of the general Ludington area. I'm not sure about specific areas, just that they are around Ludington. He also has some still life pieces that I have seen. There are many pieces of his art still within our family, but I'm sure there are many out there that we don't know about! I'm glad that you are enjoying your picture. Does it by chance have a detailed frame that has gold tones in it? Many of the pictures I have seen have quite elaborate frames that I am quite certain he also created. Hope this helps a bit :).
