After sailing with my wife Helen in and out of Oriental for over 30 years, it was not a difficult decision to make Oriental our retirement destination. Charlotte is exciting, and Raleigh is interesting, but Oriental is home.
Painting is a challenge. Trying to paint in a way that expresses one’s self is an exercise with many rewards. It is rewarding to extract the mental picture and place that image on canvas “Plein-Mind.” Hopefully, my mental images can be transferred and a painting on canvas will emerge.
My second painting method is to select a particular feature from a photograph, then add my own conceptual suggestions to the painting.
My goal is to continue experimenting with art concepts. Creating a personal art style anchors one expression. I hope you will find my paintings unique in concept, colors, and expression!
