Writer & Artist


I gave up my studio at Blue Genie Art Industries in 2003, when I began working full time at the college.  Though I enjoyed getting back into the education field, I always longed to find time to paint.  Almost a decade later, I took a week off of work, set up my easel, and painted this nearly 180 degree view over my backyard fence. You may have noticed that I left the houses unfinished, still just sketched in burnt sienna. Ruby keeps asking me, "When are you going to finish that painting, Dad?"  I smile and say, "Never."
