If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About this image:

Golden Glow 3 was accepted into The Golden Ticket Competition at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center in the Cincinnati area for an exhibition that continues through October 1, 2014.  After working in the silvery/gray oil paints to produce moody seascapes, I decided to try working with gold oil paint on canvas to capture a soft, hopeful morning/dawn seascape. The canvas is small 12″ x 12″ and has a shimmery golden sea and rose/gold at the horizon.

Links to Published Stories: The travel tabs to the right contain stories that I have posted to this web site. My Quick Index will help you target areas of interest from accommodations and food to kid-friendly attractions. Published stories can be accessed though the links at More Information/Working Words, also on the right – just scroll down. I am continually working on adding those links into the travel tabs and Quick Index for easier access.
