After college graduation with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in graphic design a decision was made to go into graphic design and continue eating regularly rather than be a fine artist accustomed to eating occasionally! When I retired I had a near thirty yearcareerin graphic design as a designer, four years employed, the remainder of those years spent as a free-lancer with the last ten of those owning my own firm.
Several years later, I returned to painting for the first time since graduating. Unlike my college exerience, I found it very enjoyable, refreshing and rewarding.
At present I have been painting for less than a decade, unaligned with a gallery and it is the source of my enjoyment. Awards, credits, articles I have received can be furnished on request. If you like a piece of work, do you buy because you like it or the artist's credentials? I believe you buy what you like and enjoy in your individual space. When I bought my first art, I wasso young, with no funds, that I had to buy on time, paying it out in monthly instalments............... which you could do in those days! How I did enjoy the art in my then apartment (now townhome, still have them)! Meals were a little skimpy for a while.
Browse my portfolio to form your own opinion – since your opinion is the primary deciding element in the like or dislike of a painting. Once acquired any painting or piece of art is likely to be with you for a very long time!
