There's No Good War

This is a photo of my Father taken about 1923. He never came home from World War II. I was 18 months old when he was killed. I often wonder what it would have been like to have had a father....

Bistro Near Montmartre

Yesterday I finished this painting of a little bistro near the bottom of Montmartre, Paris. I painted it from a photo I took in the Autumn of 2003. They make a very nice omelet and the vin ordinaire was quite decent. The painting is oil on cotton canvas and measures 14 by 18 inches (35.6 by 45.7cm).

Oil Spill - Requiem For The Gulf

Normally, I don't put links to YouTube here but this is one that I feel should be seen by as many people as possible. I feel as if the world has changed... and not for the better. Please watch this and make sure your sound is on.

Canada Geese

These photos were taken at Grand Park on Long Island, New York.
