I create still life, floral, cityscape, sometimes people and I love to do abstracts. My main mediums are oil, acrylic and water color. I have received many blue ribbons awards and have original paintings hanging in art collectors homes and in15 states of America.

I sell print of my original art work in sizes from 6.00 X 8.00 inches to 40.00 X 60.00 inches.

I sell all occasion greeting cards that are prints of my original paintings,
these are beautiful when they are matted and framed.

Why do I paint? I paint because I must have something that adds a fuller dimension to my life that extends beyond my own creative control. I have been painting in oils and acrylics for over fifty years and every day new ways of exploring the use of the mediums are opened up to me.

In my blog; I hope that I can communicate how to reach out to artist in a way that will help every one grow and be stronger in their own growth as an artist. To collectors, when I buy a piece of art I strive to see the story behind the piece of art that I have just bought, for there is always a story!

Why did this artist paint this particular piece? Did it remind him of something from a memory in his own life? Was it the colors that you wanted for your home décor, or because he knows that I can't sing and you feel sorry that this artist can’t carry a tune in a gallon bucket, “like me!”

Have a great life and a happy day!
