THE HEART OF

MY ART

Aspiring toward the classic ideals of Beauty, Goodness and Truth.

 

Inspired by the Created World, History & Artisans of Yesteryear.

 

Landscapes based largely on the beauty surrounding me in the Rocky Mountains and Foothill Open Spaces.

Still lifes inspired by classic tradition.
