 In 2017 I retired   and  while vacationing in Vieques, Puerto Rico  in February of 2018 I painted a small 12x12 canvas to donate for a Humane Society Auction at the Siddhia Hutchinson Gallery. I painted it seaside on a borrowed canvas.  I hadn't painted in almost 30 years. That little 12x12 got a resounding reception among nearly 100 other pieces. It   lit a fuse that has grown into a burning passion inside me to now paint full time an has become the driving force in my retired life. 
I am  predominantly a plein air painter. There is just a magic being outside painting, watching the light change, hearing everything around you, talking with the public. It's a wonderful experience that I think I'll never give up.    Many people say there's an energy in my work, a freshness. I think it's because I'm so excited about finally after all these years being able to do what I love and having someone purchase my work has turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences in my whole life. 
I thank you for checking out my work and I hope you will return.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
