A number of different media have captured my interest over the years – drawing, painting, collage, photography, …and then there is mixed media with all sorts of interesting possibilities. You can see a number of examples on the Artwork page and I’ll be adding many more.

Being a member of Gallery Calapooia in Albany, Oregon is another art endeavor. One of the founding members, I have shown my work there since July 2013. If you are in the area, stop by to have a look. The gallery is located in a 1906 building with an attractive cast-iron facade and original high brick walls inside, along with a lot of good artwork from 20 local artists.

Another connection to art – I am past president of the Watercolor Society of Oregon. There are about 900 members with many excellent artists in the organization. We have two 3-day conventions each year with a traditional watercolor exhibition in the fall, an experimental watermedia exhibition in the spring, and workshops by nationally known instructors. And this spring we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of WSO at The Oregon Garden and Silverton.

Thanks for stopping by!
