Paintings in oil

I began painting in oils in 1985, when Leona Wood offered to teach me.  I loved the feel of the paint, the ease of mixing colors, and the sound of the brush hitting the canvas.

I stopped painting for 20 years, and began again with Zhenya Gershman in 2019.  It’s easy to see the change in my work after I started working with Zhenya.
