About


I am a retired housepainter who enjoys drawing and painting. I hesitate to call myself an “artist,” because I do it for the pleasure of painting, and I'm not too concerned about the "art." I mostly do watercolors (usually when I’m with my grandkids), and acrylics, but oil painting requires a level of knowledge and skill that can be frustrating to someone who is self-taught. I have a few here, but for the most part, I stick to the water-based paints.

I wrote a collection of short stories about growing up in the 50’s, and later adventures, which my family encouraged me to publish. It's now available on Amazon at:
