For the past six years, I have been inspired to paint the beauty of the Hudson Valley region of New York and the Inter-costal region of Miami, Florida. I don't have to go far to see marvelous landscapes, wildlife, fauna and flora.
I have always been interested in art. I majored in fine arts at Brooklyn College, and minored in education. I taught Junior High School art for twelve years in Brooklyn, and ten years at Round Hill Elementary School in Washingtonville, New York.
Having retired I can spend all my time painting. It is the activity I enjoy most. Most of my paintings are acrylic, and a few are oils. I enjoy using the vibrancy found in the acrylics. The medium accommodates my temperament in that it is fast drying and intense.
I recently joined the Wallkill River School Plein Air painters, and I thoroughly enjoy capturing the essence of a landscape in a limited amount of time.
Painting in New York and Miami has shown me, that even though there are vast differences in topography, each area has its unique beauty.
