This painting portays one of the last survivors of the great Chicago
Fire. The Water Tower is Vibrant and festive part of the modern city-especially
as seen in the shimmering light of a winter's evening.

Cobblestone Christmas features a bridge spanning
a free-flowing brook, a church, a comfortable inn - all constructed with
flat stones that abound in the fields.
Light spills from the windows of every home and
suffuses into the crisp winter air, where it mingles with the incandescent
fires of the setting sun. God and man have truly collaborated in a celebration
of the season.

The soldier is alone ... as he is never
alone in battle.
The weight of all he has seen and done, of
the pain he has borne and the trials he has overcome bear down on his broad
shoulders. The soldier's personal war is over: he is Heading Home.

The Good Life
In The Good Life, third and final piece in my Beginning of a Perfect
Evening collection, I have in effect set up my easel in that imagined space
where God's bounty is manifest. I identify with the fisherman, who lives
in a profound harmony with nature and receives its gifts with humble gratitude.
Towering peaks embrace the valley.

on Rainbow Row
The feeling that I get when I visit Charleston is nostalgic, romantic,
as if I had somehow stepped back in time. I've filled my streets with vintage
cars and passersby wearing simple yet timeless garb. Step aboard the horse-drawn
carriage for a leisurely visit to Rainbow Row!
