Résumé

Last Modified: February 14, 2017.

I paint and write. I paint on both sides of wooden boards (30 by 43 cm), which are exhibited on narrow wooden battens (6 cm) that can cover walls, rooms, and buildings of any size. I write short pieces on sundry subjects. Many of my writings are about my paintings, as well as art in general. More can be found on the two World Wide Web addressees below.
