About Me

Retired from UC Berkeley since 2018 where I worked in Administration and now living in Santa Fe. I am an artist and I paint and draw.

Sketch of a stream after it rained near my house

This was an exploration in pen and ink trying to capture moving water in a lovely creek in a protected wilderness area within walking distance of my home. Usually it was a trickle but on that day it was full and flowing much faster, creating bubbles as it rushed over and down the rocks.

It looks like the subject posted most today is about ballet

Here is a large painting I did of a ballerina. My ex was a stagehand in the San Francisco Opera House so I knew a few of the women in the San Francisco Ballet who danced there during the ballet season. I sometimes would watch them rehearse, which inspired this painting. It’s 60” x 36”

A drawing of my son when he was 14 years old

He was drawing quietly so I took advantage of his stillness to draw this portrait. It was around 1985.

My drawing of Martin Luther King Jr in honor of his birthday

When I think of MLK Jr. I know deep down that Trump will never prevail.

Drawing of an older male model from a figure drawing class

I have a lot of these but I’m not sure about posting nudes on a public forum. Luckily I concentrated mostly on the models’ faces.

Forget about a movie about this

We’re gonna need a whole mini series about Trump’s shit!

Watching Rachel it seemed to me that she did much more than interview Parnas. I wonder if deposing is a closer description. Man! She’s phenomenal!

So do the Managers have any more duties?

I wish Nancy Pelosi would pull a Lucy from Charlie Brown

just when McConnell is reaching for the articles of impeachment.

History books in the future, if our Democracy survives

Will always say, Impeached President Trump and Oscar Nominee and Nobel Peace Prize winner President Obama.


A feminist painting from the heart of the 1980s

It was during the time when women were waking up to the possibilities of our potential. When the outer societal struggle that had gone on for years was beginning to be internalized. Gloria Steinem later wrote about that time as the time of the kitchen table discussions when, after rebelling outwardly against entrenched chauvinism, women were discovering ourselves and struggling to define what that meant. I painted this to explore the process within each woman to find her true self, using the Moon and the female figure as symbolism for the mystery of the inner world within each of us. A mystery even to ourselves.

Edited to add that the emphasis was never about being anti men even though I use the word chauvinist. Most men were not that way. It was about being pro women.
