Above & Beyond Exhibit

During September and October 2016 I am displaying several paintings in the lobby of the wonderfully creative Above and Beyond Children’s Musuem in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.  If you are downtown, stop by and enjoy… and also enjoy the great variety of interact learning experiences for children and those who continue to be children in heart.


“Plein Air” Painters Focus of SVA Final Friday

I am displaying 7 paintings at the Final Friday, January 29, 2016, opening of the Sheboygan Visual Artists, EBCO ArtWorks, Erie Avenue, Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

These are paintings that I have created “en plein air” as the French call it.  That is, they are paintings which I created substantially while working outdoors in the actual environment that I was attempting to interpret.

Here is one of the “plein air” paintings which I am displaying–and is for sale: “Summer in Sheboygan” 2015, 11×14, oil on board, framed.

Busy designing graphic arts and blogging for organizations

Sorry that I haven’t updated my website in a long while. I’ve been busy with quite a few creative projects over the past months. First, I’ve been acting as “content developer and artist” for the website, This has been a wonderful opportunity to witness the many ways the people and groups are “loving their neighbors” and in doing so, doing good in their neighborhoods. It is a joy to pass on these stories on the website.

In addition, I’ve been designing graphics for several groups. Below is a graphic I designed for the American Baptist Churches of Wisconsin:



Beyond these creative opportunities, I’ve also begun several paintings… but for the moment painting seems to be taking a backseat to these other projects. But stay tuned, I’ll update you on my latest paintings from the past year…
