I have received Two Peoples Choice Awards at the juried Festival of Arts held in Lebanon, Ohio on June 28, 2008 and June 9, 2012. The Festival was discontinued in 2013.  I exhibited my underwater photo titled "Camouflage Fish" at the Dayton Visual Arts Center from July 13- 18 August 2012.

An Example of my Photography:
I continue to  focus on photography. 
In 2005, a color “landscape” photograph titled  "Birchland" was exhibited in the Rosewood Arts Center, Kettering, Ohio and displayed my love of capturing natural scenes from interesting angles.  People have seen birds, earth contours and many other ideas from this abstract photograph.  Actually it is a close up shot of a Birch tree outside the Chicago Art Museum taken in 2005.  It has captured the imagination of many and is therefore one of the most popular photographs I have taken.  The interesting and distinct edges of the birch bark, their curvature and contrast to darker shadow and lighter exposed bark make it a complex yet wonderful composition.

 In September 2017, I took an amazing photo of sunflowers in Ohio.  It will brighten my day if the weather gets dreary.

My Theme:
The overall theme for the art is "BEAUTY IS UNIVERSAL".  You can see similar photographs taken in different places throughout the World.  I hope you enjoy them.   Thanks.
