Interests Painting, family &; friends. Writing books right now. Teaching I have been given a great gift and I don't feel it's mine to keep. It only gains value as it is given away. I suppose I'm interested in ... why. Studied classical guitar before art school took over. It all changed when I met my wife... for the better. She has given me a life to paint. Been lucky in my life's travels and acquaintances. I think I am the sum of my experiences. If you really want to know something about me, it's all in my paintings.
Favorite Movies Character driven movies. Hate the endless chase scene ones. Getting a little tired of the formula ones too. I like to leave a theater thinking or laughing and not wondering why I'm not doing either.
Favorite Music Beatles, Mozart, the occasional Gregorian Chant, Segovia, Pink Floyd, Simon &; Garfunkel
Favorite Books ... with pictures
