I have painted all my life except for about fifty years when I decided to make a living. Art instruction at UC Berkeley and Cal State Hayward gave me the artistic fundamentals. During my time in the world of business I was lucky enough to have opportunities to travel (sometimes on business, sometimes for fun) but I always traveled with a sketchbook and a camera.

Upon my retirement I rekindled my interest in creating images. I started with classic cars, but rather quickly expanded to landscapes, seascapes, and abstract works.

My wife, Peni and I still travel, and I still collect material for my paintings. In addition, our valley and surroundings are rich with subject matter. I usually paint in my studio because I have more tools at my disposal. But I find there is a singular joy in plein air painting. I paint in a variety of media, watercolor, oil, acrylic, and “other”.

I paint to please myself. I find almost every painting evokes a moment, and an emotion associated with that moment. My hope is that you enjoy my work and share the joy of my moments.

All works are framed, watercolors are matted and under glass. Contact me at acp42@sbcglobal.net I will deliver within 30 miles.
