Greetings to all!

If you have been following me for a while you will want to know that I have decided the stop offering face-to-face classes.  Although spring is here and we have both vaccinations, I have only been getting older this past year.  I have been debating for some time whether or not I would resume my teaching schedule, and how.


We are continuing the twice-a-month Zoom classes. I may be doing more and would appreciate any input on what interests you. Check out the Seminar that works for some.

I also urge you to take some time to visit the Technique Corner.  There are many worthwhile lessons embedded there.  I won’t be maintaining this website forever so I urge you to copy or print those that interest you. It is as close to a book as I will ever get.

Bill with his sister Catherine in 2018

I have just had a birthday and turned 84.  This past year has been very stressful in three generations of my family.  My oldest son, Bill, passed away in March.

My sister still needs my help and I want to be there for the rest of my family.

I also have some 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 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.  Also, if you want to be notified of any Zoom classes.  Stay in touch,

Keep painting and loving life,


April, 2021



I will do a family update in About shortly.
