ARTIST STATEMENT:            
                    I began my career as a watercolorist, but in 1972 I changed over to acrylics on canvas done in a somewhat watercolor look. The style is known as
                    photorealism. The average painting takes me three weeks to complete. The subject matter of my earlier works were of European street scenes, but
                    the current works are basically still lifes.
