“This site is a portfolio/gallery, primarily comprised of series in progress, collected or selected works for sale.

“Although I never show my portrait work to galleries, I find them an essential part of this showcase, stemming from moments when a certain personality strongly urges realization. Some of these have inspired many of my abstract works … the music of David Thomas and Robert Ashley, for example.

“As I commemorated forty years of painting in 2014, I cannot over-emphasize how beautiful the journey has been.
