“Painting and drawing is something I do for the love of it, and that about sums it up'. I live in Blackstone Massachusetts now but In the nineteen fifties’ my mother, who loved to draw but was not a professional artist, was a stay at home mom who ruled our house, my, two younger brothers and I.
Unaware of the huge influence she would have on my love for drawing and painting, she gave up art to focus on us kid's. When she did draw however, I would watch her draw portraits and along with her encouragement, I learned that I had a bit of talent myself. Having no money.
I studied art on my own. Two of my mentors were and still are, John Singer Sargent and John Singleton Copley. Copley was born in Boston, Massachusetts July 3, 1738. Most famous for Portraiture he was self-taught and learning that encouraged me to work as hard as I could on my own.
My preferences are portrait painting, still life and landscapes but I enjoyed working with many other subjects and mediums. Oil paint is my preferred medium, though I also enjoy working with watercolor, charcoal, graphite, pen and ink and pastels. I hope you enjoy some of the works I have posted.
