I’m a simple Boomer having a pleasurable time observing my world. I have fun both with camera and with acrylic paints and mixed media. I probably take more photographs than paint paintings, but I have a grand time doing whichever I’m doing at any particular moment.
I don’t take myself, or my art, too seriously. I used to do a lot of art shows and sales, but times and motivation change. Of course I strive to create the very best I can, but the process, the having fun creating, the observations are what now inspire me.
I’ve lived in Washington State for the last 11 years, the last three in Spokane, but I still have roots and family in Southern California, which was my home for decades and where I raised my two sons.
I enjoy painting and photographing objects and shapes that appeal to my own aesthetic, and if some get shown and sold, which seems to be on the increase of late, it’s simply whipped cream with a cherry on top of a whole lot of fun.
