Stormcloud Over Calumet Island, is the view my wife and I had one evening sitting on the deck of Bella's Restaurant in Clayton, New York. Looking across the river toward Calumet Island we saw the approaching coming and felt the wind pick up bringing a deluge of it rain with it. Our river is one of the most amazing and beautiful places in the world. Evertime I am on it, I feel like I am in the middle of some incredibly dynamic and beautiful movie scene.

All original painting regardless of whether they are acrylic, oil, watercolor or pastel are done with the finest quality paints available. I use only series #1 or #2 pigments which are the most durable (fade resistant) on the market. After each work is completed it is either varnished with 100% UV protectors or is placed under Conservation UV protected glass. All paintings are framed using the highest quality materials and methods to insure the work will last many lifetimes if taken care of. Little care is needed except to avoid the obvious - Don't hang art in direct sunlight and avoid hanging any works on paper (even though properly framed) in a high humidity area like a bathroom / shower or over a kitchen sink. The papers used in a watercolor are archival mould made paper known in many cases for centuries of quality. All oils are executed on either genuine linen canvas(never cotton canvas) or on a prepared masonite panel.
