The Artist Says:


   I have a love of the beauty of nature and a respect for the older things and people that are vanishing daily from our modern world. I search them out in such places as Mexico, Europe, the Texas Coast, and the Southwest and try to capture them in spirit before they are all gone. Much of this is done on location (Plein air).
