Retired CPA who always just wanted to be an artist. Now that I have the time,
I’m having fun doing tons of art. Almost all of my education was related to
accounting and tax (blaaaah), with a couple of watercolor classes in Junior
College as electives. So, I’m basically self-taught in art.
As a lifelong native Michigander, I have the advantage of many outdoor
experiences throughout the state and gobs of photos to draw inspiration for
new paintings. Also, my travels through the US provided additional ideas as
painting subjects. The mountains of the West and the Southwestern deserts
were inspiring and made for some fun paintings.
Animals seem to make their way into many paintings. Dogs are my favorite
subjects, then landscapes and water scenes. Don't do much with people as
subjects, except when the setting is fun and different.
I work in watercolor, oil and acrylic. Lately, most of my time has been spent
on doing watercolors. Watercolor and oil paintings allow me to take a nap: acrylic
Here's the artist’s mission statement: If it ain’t fun, I don’t do it. That’s the
objective. I hope you get that sense while you gaze at my work.
Thanks for looking.
