About The Artwork

Sometimes cloud formations, especially in storms, become quite erratic, so much so, if one was flying through a set of storm clouds, say a hurricane, we'd encounter towering clouds, much like the painting. "Stormy" as this painting of mine is called, is nothing more than a hectic looking cloud formation, could be over the ocean, could be over land, its definitely an immense column of moisture and pressure, building up to a storm. Being a US Navy veteran of WW2, I saw many terrific storms and cloud formations, we almost capsized our little Patrol Craft (PC-1080), due to a captain in training not knowing how to maneuver our little ship to take on massive storm waves. Luckily, our captain was able to wrangle control from the wayward novice, and steer our ship in a way in which we were saved by mere seconds. I painted this piece as a cloud study, in the 1977, a year in which I painted a few cloud studies. Seeing as this painting is not signed nor dated in the front, it can be mounted and placed in any orientation you'd like and it'd still have the same level of intrigue.

My last painting, thus far, was just recently completed in September 2021. As of May 2021, at 97 years of age, my desire to paint lives on, even though I have trouble seeing properly (Macular Degeneration) and my hands are a bit shaky from time to time (Essential Tremors). Nevertheless, I still managed to finish this latest painting, a landscape, with fields protruding from below a majestic looking column of colorful clouds glowing in the vibrancy of a fiery sunset. Seeing as I have trouble with my hand trembles, I have to complete my work by using the 'daubing' technique, however, not in a careless manner as the terminology may suggest. I plan to outlive my mother, whom lived to be 107 years of age. To do so, I must try to find forever homes for some of my larger and most coveted pieces of art. I've always said I want to donate all the art I have in my possession to an art museum that'll agree to display it from time to time, when I pass away. Yet, finances dictate I should try to use my artwork to better set myself up for the years ahead, if I do indeed plan to live in my own home for the next decade or so. Hence, putting some of my children (original works of art) up for adoption to a new loving home and future.
