"Many of the images in this year's calendar are from an earlier time when I would travel back roads of Wisconsin and Michigan acquiring barn wood for small vignette paintings and picture frames. A Ford Coupe in a shed or an abandoned Chevy in a barn would always make me stop for photographs and sketches."
"I like country roads in autumn and dark meandering streams in winter. When I paint old cars in quiet country settings, I am combining two things I really love. It seems to have worked for forty years since I have not accepted a "real job" that my father urged me to find. I hope the images stir some memories for those who happen upon the calendar."
