The ART page    

is off to a slow start. 

Recent surgery prevents me from                        

hiking up the hill to the studio,                   

but I hope to get back to work soon.                           


I've always been interested in learning to paint but never got around to applying myself seriously until this year. I built a small studio so Nereida and I can leave easels and materials set up rather than have to set things up in the living room and take them down at the end of a session and worry about splattering paint on walls and floor.

I watch instructional videos on YouTube in the mornings, take notes, and try to apply what I've learned in the afternoons. Sometimes I get lucky.

Two of three paintings entered won ribbons for First and Second in their categories. The blue-ribbon winner became my first sale.
