I see leaves of green, red roses too, and I think to myself what a wonderful world.

But mostly, I see Coastal Blue.

I enjoy my time near the coasts the most. My childhood memories were created on the East Coast of New England, with its display of salty bright blues, lighthouse whites and lobster boat reds.

Here in Northern California, most of my visual inspiration comes from places along the water. California provides a beautiful backdrop for an artist.

Some paintings are pure expression inspired from special moments in my life that evoked strong visual senses, such as a sunny day at a parade as a child or a quiet afternoon at the park with my Sons when they were younger.  

I am fortunate to have an artist's view of the world and to be able to recollect many experiences of my life in living color.  As I remember my life memories, I think to myself what a wonderful colorful world.
