By profession I was an elementary and junior high music teacher. My wife and I sang folk music for many years. In 1981 I discovered a latent flair for visual art and gained support from many of my artist peers. I was fortunate to receive many awards at regional and national shows and after much experimentation settled on abstract and landscape genres. My landscapes are not turbulent or stormy scenes- rather I choose to covey peace and serenity, highlighting color tints. Each work is created from imagination rather then from actual scenes. The last several years I've been doing digital painting in landscape and abstract motifs. The early years I used entirely pastels but now I use only digital painting software. This will sound strange- but feel very comfortable working many genres.
