My Journey to create things of Beauty.

Being an artist started very early for me.

At 6 years old, my friend (Daniel D.) had extraordinary art skills.Coming from a famous artistic family, he had a great deal of positive reinforcement to produce art.I remember the beautiful beach scene he made for us in school with crayons.

Daniel,his tongue extended to the corner of his mouth, crayon pushed to the limit, extracting every ounce of color onto the paper as he mashed the wax down with each scumble.

He had a vision and needed no preliminary outlines.Lot's of times his crayons broke (you weren't supposed to do that in those days), but at the end of the day, he was a 6 year old wonder.He was my inspiration way back then...

Every time I pick up and smell a box of crayons, I'm rushed back to that day!

I wanted to learn just how to do that!

Everything I could about the process of making art.Especially painting.

After High School, life took me on a different path.  In the Air Force, then in Big Industry I used my problem solving skill to fix things.But I never gave up painting.

Walking away from Industry in 2007, I began my full time journey into the art world.  My work earlier was mostly still life and a few landscapes.  Today, it revolves around Floral, Still life's, and the occasional landscape.

My present work is more to the romantic and the classical side as opposed to Photo-realism. If you could see some of my reference photos, you'd see quite a difference as I interpret the subject and produce what I believe is a work of beauty conforming to classical rules rather than a copy of the photo.

Come join me in this journey to discover beauty

Your contributions will help me to continue this time honored tradition of picture making, and in helping you too will own a piece of art that will last through the generations.
