I love to travel and I take pictures everywhere I go. I have been doing this for decades, but only since I have retired have I had time to paint. I have taken art classes and joined a group of artists to paint in the company of other artists and to discuss and critique our work. I have an intense interest in bright clean clear colors. I want the paintings to make people feel good. I gives me a lot of pleasure to create beauty. Painting these scenes of my travels and life in San Francisco bring my memories alive for me.
