After retiring from the corporate life and as a small business owner, I decided, with encouragement from my sister, to try my hand at painting. That was two years ago and I have surprised myself with my artistic abilities. With the assistance from my sister, some private lessons and online classes, I have become confident in my abilities as a painter. I love the process of taking an idea and putting it on a blank canvas. I will continue to pick up new ideas to enhance my work as I gain more experience.
My art journey so far has been with acrylics. I love the outdoors so my focus has been on landscapes. My works include a Maui sunset. Mt Rainer after a May snow, fall color in the Sierras, Mono lake summer storm, New Jersey fall morning and other Northern Nevada paintings. I also completed a painting of my granddaughter caught in a beautiful moment from a vacation, Reaching for the Stars! I have many projects planned and can’t wait to get started.
When I am not painting, I enjoy running, I have completed 9 half marathons, hiking and enjoying a good bottle of wine with my wife, Claudia. With my background in accounting, I prepare taxes and consult on bookkeeping for small businesses. I also officiate high school and youth baseball and baskeball.
