All the images you see on this sight are original and done within the last few years up to current work. While much of the recent work delve into portraiture, you will see landscapes, cityscapes, and still-life pieces. The primary medium is gouache, watercolor, graphite, pen & ink, and acrylic. Of course, all the work is for sale. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for you interest. Bill
