I’m a retired Episcopal priest living in Tracyton, Washington. I started my art practice when our sons left home for college in 2006, and I continually strive to improve my technique and broaden my style. My goal is to create excellent portraits, life drawings, and landscapes in a impressionistic style. My heroes are Trevor Chamberlain, Edward Seago, and Edward Wesson. I’m currently taking an online watercolor class with Eric Wiegardt, and I’ve studied with Tom Hoffman, Stella Canfield, and Herman Pekel.
Every day I look for interesting subjects to sketch or paint, and I try to capture the impressions of local life. I especially enjoy exploring the back roads of Kitsap County to discover the old farms, buildings, and barns that characterized life here fifty or a hundred years ago.
