The hills of California, usually green in spring, are yellow and brown. The reservoir, usually full, shows banks around the edges. The dark areas are where grass fires have already burned. Two cows walk on the exposed banks of the lake, trying to stay cool. This year, 2021, is just the same in March. Environmentalists predict full-blown...
The hills of California, usually green in spring, are yellow and brown. The reservoir, usually full, shows banks around the edges. The dark areas are where grass fires have already burned. Two cows walk on the exposed banks of the lake, trying to stay cool.

This year, 2021, is just the same in March. Environmentalists predict full-blown wildfires by July instead of September, as would be usual.

The image extends to the edges of the painting.

In my work, I'm looking for that place where work and play are one, where spirit and matter meet.

I have taught at Texas Tech, Amarillo College, Laney College in downtown Oakland, California, at UC Berkeley, and at the College of the Virgin Islands. At Laney, where I taught for forty years, I studied art with Bill Snider, who used the techniques of the Dutch masters to paint Disney characters.

Retirement has given me time to paint in earnest, and to explore different types of paintings. In September, 2013, Artmajeur honored me with a Silver Award.

After forty years in the San Francisco Bay Area, my family and I have moved to the foothills of the Sierras, and retirement has given me a chance to paint in earnest, to make painting part of every day. I've explored landscapes, news, portraits and figures, sports animals, surrealism.

Art is a way to learn about the world, about yourself and your experiences, the way you see and feel life, what you value. Welcome to my galleries! I hope you find some things to enjoy.
