 I love to paint. I do it for fun. Over the decades I've been fortunate to have had many opportunities to exhibit my art - most recently through the Fraser, Colorado Plein Air Festivals and now at Denver International Airport.


It is gratifying when folks admire and acquire a piece of my art. Equally gratifying is when I'm able to support good causes either by donating a piece (s) of art or donating a percentage of sales proceeds.

My paintings have been donated in the past to support a number of good causes. A donation I made three years ago to Cottonwood Institute ( of the water color portraits I painted of all 53 Colorado 14ers has begun to yield some success for that worthy, local nonprofit. 


I will be further supporting Cottonwood Institute by donating a portion of all net proceeds from sales from this website.
