Painting the landscape has been my passion for most of my life. I started out in Ossining New York as a young teenager and attempted to paint along the Croton River on several occasions. These excursions were exciting and frustrating at the same time. I eventually got professional instruction with some of the Country’s best Painters, but that was years later.
Whether painting the great outdoors of the American West or working on a crowded street of New Your City, painting is just as much a thrill now as it was the first time I set out to paint the Croton River!
