I'm also an architect. I'm licensed in 6 states and Canada. I do get a lot of enjoyment from my architectural design work, but
prefer the liberation of painting, where I am my own client, creator, and audience. Hopefully, other people enjoy it too....
My Art Collection
I collect art as well as make it.
I collect primarily modernist and abstract expressionist work, both historical, and contemporary. I currently have about 230 works in my collection and add to it as budget allows. I'm fortunate to have found some extrodinary works over the years.
Studio & Show Pics
Here are some assorted pictures of various [exhibitions] over the years.
I always prefer to work out of a home studio. The ability to get up and paint with a moment's notice is critical.
Over the years, my studio has ranged from a dining room, to a closet sized spare bedroom, too my current room space.

over the years.
I've been writing poetry as long as I've been producing art.
I'm probably a better artist than poet, but sometimes words are the best medium for me to express a thought of feeling. I've had one or two poems
published in obscure books/magazines over the years but really don't put much effort into publication. One of these days I'll get around to self publishing a book of all my writing.
Past Exhibition Material
Various announcements and postcards from shows over the years.
I tried to keep a record of all of my shows over the years. Here are some of the various show announcements. I have extras of a few that anyone is welcome to.
