My best critic!

Lana studied some of the work that I had ready to take to the Settlement House.
After a few moments, the verdict was in!!!

Article published in on-line magazine

Andrea Melione met me and my art at the Athens ARTSfest this past May. She expressed interest in writing an article about my artwork and I readily agreed! Andrea and her mother visited me at my home and were given a tour of my cellar studio. I did some demonstrating and talking. We had an enjoyable afternoon. Soon after Andrea emailed me that the article was finished and published online. What a great layout and article! Click on the link Art Trader and then go to page 38 to see the article. Thank you Andrea!

The artist as a young man

Actually, I'm just dreaming. I'm standing with Dale Ulkins who was just gifted by his brother Doug with one of my paintings. Doug asked me to make something with Dale's name and some Gretsch guitars. I felt honored to see Dale's delight in the gift. Dale has recorded some music for kids - "You Gotta Read" was inspired by his daughter Sarah's love of reading. The photo was taken by Dale's son Graham.

Wedding and painting

My son Nathan and his lovely bride Lindsay renewed their vows this past weekend at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Williamsport. Below is the wedding painting I was able to make for them. Corey and Lana have their names and little symbols embedded in the textures, as do Nate and Linz.
Here is the happy couple as taken by my camera!
