About the Artist/Site
The trapper, conservationist, “river rat,” and painter known as “Huck” Siefert lived on the banks of the Mississippi, in a small shack in Nelson, Wisconsin, along with his dog and companion Tidy. Late in his life, with the assistance of a few television art lessons, Seifert taught himself to paint, depicting wildlife, pictures from memory, and images from print media on canvas board. After he framed his works in birch and willow, Seifert would attach one painting to the next with hooks. He lined several interior walls in this manner and covered other walls with personal notes and pages from daily weather journals, kept for decades. Most of the items in Seifert’s yard were also painted, including his truck. Handmade signs and painted objects lined the perimeter.
