Art at 75+ by Alan

Before you go on to view my work I sincerely ask that you Pray to your GOD and ask that this plague, this evil, be taken from us and help heal.

Born in 1944 I an am American artist. I studied architecture at the University of Illinois and in 1965 and later received an Assoc. of Arts in Architecture from Chicago Wright Junior College. While studying I became familiar with architectural presentation drawings, drafting, model making, eventually leading to an interest in art.

Not being able to find work in the Architectual field I found employment in Mechanical Design and over time acquired another Associates Degree in Electro-Mechanics. After many years in that occupation I retired at the age of 65 years.

At the age of 58 I decided to pursue a B.A. and in 2003 received a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Arts from DePaul University, focusing on the commercial side of art. After I retired and decided to focus on my artwork and am inspired by the past and present day activities that occur in present day life.

As I matured and became a senior citizen, I discovered the need to express what I have experienced and witnessed in life. Over the years I have developed a keen interest in acrylics, watercolors and recently started painting with oil.

During the current covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, I found the time and the ‘need’ to develop my artwork. My thoughts, interests, beliefs, and feelings are reflected in artwork. I have a strong faith and believe “God give us all strength to survive and prosper”.

I am grateful to see so many people around the world view my work. Thank you so much for the honor of coming to Artpal and looking.

Please email me at and thank you for viewing my work. I live in Rolling Meadows, Illinois, which is a suburb of Chicago.
