The Mill Pond at the Robbins & Lawrence Armory in Windsor
If this is your first visit to my website let me give you a brief history of my background.  I was born in New York City and lived there for the first
27 years of my life growing up and attending the NYC public school system.  For higher education I studied
art at Pratt  Institute and the New
School for Social Research.  

I married the lovely and delightful Elsa and in 1962 we moved into a farmhouse we bought on East Hill Road in Boynton Hollow in the
bucolic  hamlet of Andover, Vermont.  Two hundred fifty souls living on sixteen thousand five hundred acres.   At the time
our 200 year old
house had no plumbing, no telephone and one electrical outlet, but we did have a privy and a sauna.   Most of the farms on East Hill
Road were Finnish and about every farm  had sauna......... Don't despair we do now have indoor plumbing, electricity, a telephone, even a
color TV.

Much of my time for the last three decades has been spent painting the Vermont countryside trying to capture the simple small town life in
and around Andover.  An enthusiastic plein aire painter and an admirer of the Impressionist movement my goal is to apply paint with lively
brushwork and glowing colors reminiscent of that movement.  Simple, focused, capturing the truth of the moment - my snapshots.

Over the years I have also studied and painted with many internationally known artists, among them are, Norman Lewis, Judi Wagner,
Frank Web, Charlie Sovek, Harry Dayton, Peter Huntoon, Judith Carbine and Bob O'Brien.  These artists are painters and friends who have
always inspired me.  I hope that what you see here in my website will also inspire you.
