From the "They don't make'm like they used to" files:
I've had many different stereo set ups over the past fifty years. The latest (bottom of picture) was this fancy pants BlueTooth, CD, FM (no AM!) multi functional all in one unit. Lasted about two years before things started to go wrong. Bluetooth stopped Bluetoothing, CD player stopped CD playing, and now the radio stopped radioing.
Note the scratched foggy simple clock radio on the top...clock working, radio tuned perfectly, stereo clear and crisp. It's been dropped, bumped, shaken, lost and found, you name it... its endured it. The best part of it...you'll love this part:
When I was 17 years old (41 years ago) my father came home with this one in a box from Radio Shack. "Happy Birthday!" he said.
how could he know that this humble little bedside radio would still be waking me up and keeping me company here in my studio 41 years later?
Thank you Dad, a symbol of the rock that you have been in my life. I love you forever, and love my Chronmatic radio too!

The Artists Journey

This sketch above became this finished painting below
The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
