Painting has become
my major interest and passion after I retired from Pfizer, I enjoy
nature; the flowers and the surrounding landscape are my favorite
My other hobbies include
Chinese painting and gardening with a special affection for orchids
For the last six years, as
a member of the Plein Air Artist of West Michigan, outdoor landscape
painting has become the Primary focus. Many of these paintings are
included in the Painted Sanctuary annual Calendar
issued by the Southwest Land Conservancy
In addition to a member of the Plein Air association, I also
belong to the Southwest Michigan Watercolor Society and the Battle
Creek Society of Art.
My paintings have been displayed throughout Southwest Michigan
including venues such as: Three Rivers Regional juried
Art Show, Kalamazoo Art Hop, and Battle Creek Art Center.
