Marble Effect Lion Sculpture Restoration at Jimmy's

Lately I have been working for a customer in Davie, Florida, Jimmie's Chocolates, on restoring weather-worn Lion Sculptures. As you can see in the pictures below, I am breathing new life into these regal sculptures by giving them a new 'marble' finish. Do you or someone you know in the South Florida area need decorative restoration work done by a Master Artist? If so, send me a note through my website CONTACT page. I look forward to bringing restoration dreams to life. 😃

Restoring My Artwork

Improved Eyesight Leads to Painting Touch-ups! 

After recently having completed cataracts surgery in both eyes, I find that the new crystal clear lenses I am looking through give me a more "cool" bluing effect on what I can now see! Examining my artworks from the 1970's, 80's and newer made me realize that touch-up improvements were in order for some of my portrait paintings.

Today I began that process with Lady Sofia, Sir Lindsey and others at TRAX Art Studios in Oakland Park, Florida, where I currently have an exhibit of my artwork up until July 10th, 2016. Call the studio to set up an appointment to stop by and see a selection of my portraits, landscapes, shells, and illustrations. 954-368-2294

Broward Shell Show Success

Shell Painting Wins an Award!

On January 16 & 17, 2016, I was honored to be an exhibitor at the 51st Annual Broward Shell Show in Pompano Beach, Florida. I've had a fascination with shells since being introduced to some exotics in NYC in the 1960's and have had a passion for painting them ever since!

Restoration of Major Mural at San Carlos Institute, Key West

Revisiting my 1978 Key West Mural Painting

Last week I was in Key West, Florida, making repairs to a large mural of Carlos Manuel deCespedes at the San Carlos Institute. I originally painted this mural in 1978 and it was a pleasure to bring it back to it's original beauty. A big Thank You to all involved in having me back for this restoration!
