I have had the pleasure of visiting Italy several times. As a painter I am drawn to its diverse landscapes, including its rugged mountains, its marvelous coastlines, and its abundance of ruins.
My daughter moved to Colorado in 2007, so I have had many opportunities to visit and to paint the landscape of that beautiful place.
As a life-long Maryland resident, the beauty and diversity of the Maryland landscape have attracted my painting interests for several decades. Its beauty and variety throughout the seasons offer endless opportunities.
I am fascinated by cities, old and new. Though my hometown, Baltimore, is a favorite subject, I have had opportunities to diversify the subject, ranging from the intense complexity and expanse of New York or Tokyo to the ancient ruins of Italy.
American West 1
One cannot resist visiting (and revisiting) and painting the immense splendor and variety of the American southwest.
My son moved to Japan in 2019 and I have had the good fortune of visiting him there. Japan offers spectacular landscapes of both intense urbanization, or of sublime history and architecture.
I have been studying artwork diverse in time and geography. I expressed this initially by painting representations of ancient Roman sculpture an frescoes of Renaissance Italy. More recently, I also became fascinated with images of India, the far east and ancient America. Eventually, the paintings of sculpture grew into more complex original arrangements composed in multi-media, including manipulated photographic prints from images of various cultures.
