Third Vice President, Newsletter Editor and Web Master, Art League of Nassau County
The inspiration for my work as a painter and illustrator is direct observation of the world around me. The subway and the endless variety of characters and personalities with whom I travel has been a major inspiration. The history of New York City as reflected in the city’s buildings and public monuments has been another source of interest to me. The countryside, with its views of trees and landscapes has been source of fascination for me. All has been recorded in sketch books, through direct observation.
