The following photographs were taken of Otis Lael in his workshop in the basement of his Pine River home in February of 2005. Otis saved and scrounged just about everything and anything to be incorporated into his folk-art works. Otis had the abilility to take mundane objects and junk and to assimilate them into the creation of his art work in a humorous and often satirical manner. This is a rare peek into the workspace of a true folk-art genius.
