Ahhhh...

If you take a close look you will recognize that my paintings reflect 30 years of commercial and technical illustration using a pen and India ink. Today my paintings reflect the same good drawing but with some nice colors thrown on top.

I retired from commercial work (early thank you) to enjoy doing art my own way. And that is, painting till sunrise and sleeping late. Mmmm, it's all good. Please don't call before 9.

Thanks
Tom
