Anytime is a good time to think of volunteering at Syracuse NY or nearby.

In 2004 (approximately) I donated that piece to the RescueMission's auction, and it sold!! Confidence resulted and here I am. Founded "CNY Art Forum" in 8/08…Continue

If Rube Goldberg were 1) still alive, and 2) looking for an apprentice, I'd be knocking on his door. Mechanical metal gear-y contraptions that do things make me happy. Whirligigs! Weathervanes! The "Perpetuball Motion Machine" at Salmon Run Mall in Watertown!
Well, my latest venture into making things doesn't really fit into the whirligig or weathervane category, but I have been using metal to make jewelry. I love art because everything an artist creates is part of that…Continue

I have always loved the beautiful old architecture of Downtown Syracuse.
There are so many unique buildings and styles; each a work of art.

The downtown festivals and parades with their profusion of color and excitement are so much fun to paint! The Veterans Day Parade of 2008 is pictured here. Flags are flying everywhere. A massive US flag hangs over Salina Street, suspended by two City of Syracuse Fire Trucks.…Continue

I have been and probably always will be a landscape painter. I don't think there is ever a time when I am not noticing the landscape. Whether going to work, or to the store, or biking along the Erie Canal, I am always looking at the land, the sky and the water.
In Upstate New York, we are so fortunate to have such amazingly beautiful places like the Adirondack Mountains, the Thousand Islands and the Finger Lakes Region. I am always drawn to water and love to paint the ripples and…
