Artistic Renderings

I try to paint or draw from time to time. I returned to art after more than 30 years away from it. I began by taking some classes at the San Diego Art Museum School where I did oils for the first time. When I do art, I am totally in the present moment. I have done art since I was 4 or 5 years old. You're never "too old" to begin, or renew, a passion for painting and drawing.

I sometimes take classes at the Harwood Art School in Albuquerque . My favorite teachers there are Leo Neufeld (life drawing) and Deborah Secor (pastels).

Below is Los Poblanes Farm in the North Valley (Albuquerque), a value study in oil (2006)

My friend and fellow artist, Takako, was so patient to pose for me while on vacation in Sedona, Arizona (Fall, 2007).
