I oil paint from your photo. Portraits are my specialty.

Abigail's portrait is one of my favorites!

Email me a photo, and I'll oil paint from it.

Let me write your story with you.

I am a writer, and I would love to help you write your story for your family or for the world.  I know how you can publish your story.  I have 6 stories at Amazon.  One is my musical, "Quilt Mania the Musical," one is "Sailing to Block Island," and 4 short stories.  I am currently using my artist skills to learn "Clip Studio Paint."  Because there are millions of books out there, comic books, using art to tell the story, is the best route to take to get market share.

Graphic Arts

I am learning Clip Studio Paint.  It is superior to all other drawing/painting/animation programs that I have ever used or studied.  There are millions of books now at Amazon.  I am going to write comic books about science, mathematics, engineering, and people's life stories, and ideas.  Comics are not just for super hero's any more.   Commission me to author a comic book for you.  Please email me with your ideas.

This art program is from Japan, and is superior to anything else on the market.  It is available at their website, and you might find it fascinating.  Do a google search on "Clip Studio Paint."
