My paintings continue to explore figurative options, some come from nature, others from imagination and history. I strive for a good composition, a particular quality of light, an atmosphere, a memory visualized. The paintings called Reception I, II, in this show, depict hand-held devices with various images on their screens, like pictures within pictures.

My influences were: The natural beauty and weather of Los Angeles where I was born and grew up: the primary colors of the 40's-50's; Melissa Blake (dance teacher); Mr. Cassidy/ Fairfax HS/Art Appreciation; David Park/ Berkeley; William Brice/UCLA/The Old Masters; classmates at UCLA; Ceeje Gallery mates; Family Life; Life/Love.
