ENERGY 24" x 36" Acrylic on Canvas
I've been a weekend painter off and on for more than 50 years but made a living Monday through Friday in various corporate pursuits. For example, on behalf of a Dallas-based investment banking firm, I traveled weekly to cities from coast to coast, both in the United States and Canada, presenting full-day seminars for business owners and corporate CEOs on Mergers and Acquisitions. Between trips I painted.
Finding the weekly travel schedule grueling, and with the gentle encouragement of my wife, I finally retired to do what I love most -- I now paint full time and in a remarkable turn of events I fly anywhere my imagination takes me and I never have to board a plane.
While I don't speak to audiences anymore, I am still communicating.
Painting is, after all, a luminous language.
I paint primarily in Acrylics on canvas and have experimented with varied styles and subject matter. Landscapes, still lifes, portraits and abstracts all interest me. My greatest joy is that I'm continuing to learn. I love painting and I am particularly motivated by development of nuances in color, tone and texture.
Austin, Texas is my home and while most of my paintings celebrate the great Southwest, having spent the majority of my life in Wisconsin, some of my work continues to reflect the Midwest.
I sit on the board of Austin's Creative Arts Society (CAS), and am also a member of Lakeway Painters and The Austin Visual Arts Association.
