The building in this drawing is a church just off the beach on Gasparilla Island in Florida. In the background the couple on the walkway were looking toward the beach. I loved the light on the white stucco building and the way the roof lines converge on the distant couple.

Decades ago I took several art courses at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, TX. I took a long break from creating art but recently started up again after discovering that having a creative outlet is a necessity and not a luxury. I grew up in the Midwest, but after graduating from college with an engineering degree, I moved to Houston, TX for what was suppose to be a short assignment. I then met my wife, changed careers, and grew to love Houston, where I have lived for the past 27 years. My other passions are hiking, playing Scrabble, and being the best Dad I can be. Becoming an artist is a journey for me. I don't know where that journey will take me and that is exciting.
