I hope you enjoy the art!  My passion is to create images that remind me of places visited, times with friends and family and times of quiet reflection of God’s creation. I created this site as a way to share my passion for art. I am an associate member of the Pastel Society of America and Signature member of the Northwest Pastel Society. I have several works If you are interested in buying any pieces contact the Bush Barn Gallery or Elsinore Gallery here Salem (503) 581-4642

I usually take digital photos during trips and try to capture at least one moment with a painting. My paintings bring back all the memories of those times.

Please enjoy all the stories my wife Jean has written over the years. She is really much more talented than I am. See Stories
