A Life of Painting

Biography Artist Statement Interview Contact the artist

Each summer is spent visiting the numerous islands, bays and coves along Maine's rocky shore. A truly wonderful place and an inspiration for many of my paintings.
Some sailing activities:
Trip down east to Jonesport (2007)
Granpa rescued by the Coast Guard (2008)
All recent painting is reached from my Home Page
Work done 1971 to 1980
Charcoal combines the directness and speed of a sketch with the drama and splendor of a painting. Most of these pictures were done in a single year, 1979, when I had a nice studio in Gedera, Israel. The ideas were collected in notebooks, then larger drawings were made in the studio.
Work done 1963 to 1970
As a student I travelled around on a tight budget, hitchhiking and sleeping under the stars. The sketch on the left was done by a young Israeli woman. I later married her!

Many of the sketches from this period were made as a personal record rather than as works of "art". For instance sketches made in Ein Gedi and Jerusalem. These picture are not for sale.
