I am currently painting in watercolor. I enjoy its fluidity and immediacy, and the “surprises” it offers. I paint landscapes, figures and abstract pieces inspired by emotions or news events. I have also enjoyed oil painting and printmaking, and have been fortunate to take classes from artists in this area: Larry Chappelear, Steve Fleming, Earl Hofmann and Joe Mayer. There are some years when I have not painted much due to work and family commitments, but art is something I have always returned to. I live in St. Leonard, MD, and am affiliated with the Calvart Gallery in Prince Frederick, MD.
