I am still here. At 85 I am having back issues which slow me down. I am not really teaching any more and will be taking out the  CLASSES  section.  I am leaving it up for now in case there is anything you want to copy and  save.

If you are interested in watercolor techniques please go to TECHNIQUE CORNER .  There are some time-proven entries you might want to consider. Consider starting from 2008 and working backwards.

I suggest you print out your favorites as I won’t maintain the web page forever. These are as close as I will get to writing a book about painting.

I still have thoughts I want to share and will be entering them from time to time in the Technique Corner.  I don’t have a schedule but it will be a bit like a blog.  If you want to comment write me at my email, watercolors@rockisland.com.

I need to update the GALLERY soon. Also the ABOUT me — those little children are all young adults now.  But if you scroll back in the posts there are some entertaining  stories from our early years on the Island.

Our big news is that our beloved Island property – Obstruction Island, San Juans, WA- is staying in the family. We are all so happy about this. My younger son, James, has bought it.  We held it off the market for several years so he could be in a position to conclude the purchase. I am leaving up the  Island property page so you can see and perhaps remember our special place.

The forest preserve 5 minutes from our Anacortes home. The forest preserve 5 minutes from our Anacortes home.

I am trying to find time to complete some of the things on my own bucket list which are not getting done.  One of my To Do’s is to finish the memoir I have been writing about my 19 years of taking people to the Greek Islands to paint and about one island, Amorgos, in particular.  I am not sure in what form this memoir will emerge but it is more than50 pages long. If you would like to be notified when it is finished, be sure I have you email.  

Or just touch base to let me know you remember good times, if you are still painting, or whatever else you would like to share. Look for new entries.  I will do a  new entry notice on this page when I have one.

Keep painting and loving life,
