Hanging a beautiful piece of art in a dark corner is an injustice to the art and a missed opportunity to show the painting at its best. It would be like going to a party looking drop-dead gorgeous and finding out the venue is a very dark room where you can barely be seen. No one can appreciate how great you look.  What a waste! The best way ...

... 1912 and 1948, amateur artists could win gold, silver or bronze in any of five different categories:  architecture, painting, sculpture, literature and music.  Entries had to have some sort of sporting theme and were judged by an international jury.

I have been trying to capture the elusive quality of being human in my paintings for many years. I have painted expressions. I have painted the way light interacts with the body.
