I'm an artist and writer of fiction and blogs, 72 years old, now living in Encinitas, CA. I picked up art again a few years after graduating from the fourth grade (about 60) and made my way from acrylic to oil and back, and through realism to abstract. There are examples of all within these pages. I'm, ultimately, a long-time day-dreamer, and believer in hope and wonder. Magic too.
