jet2a.jpg One of my early oil paintings, done in 1985 when I was in high school, this one is of a jet aircraft that I had been designing on a CAD system at NASA Langley Research Center as part of an Explorer Scout program in aerodynamics. I wanted to see what it would look like as more than just a line drawing on a computer terminal. christmas2a.jpg Another oil painting from 1985, because I liked the Christmas tree and wanted to capture that moment in time. Painted live, in the living room.
swans2a.jpg This is the last painting I did in an art class at Duke University 1st semester of my Sophomore year, in 1987, under the tutelage of Vernon Pratt. By that time I had moved from a detailed style to a looser, quicker style. I think it was the best painting I made that year.
