Over the years, I have become friends with several painters: Victor Kraus from Munich, Germany; and Judy North from Marin County, California.
My friendship with Victor, who lives in Munich, Germany, has intensified my appreciation of painting and dedication to one's work. Over the years we have had many opportunities to paint together. I have borrowed several of Victor’s ideas (including the format for his website). My homepage photo was taken in his studio.
My friendship with Judy has been one long lesson in how to integrate art and life.
Paul Klee's work has inspired me for many years. The Paul Klee Center website is worth visiting.
Below are the websites of two friends, Terry Keats and Thomas Reynolds:
Terry Keats sells French prints from the late 19th through early 20th centuries.
Thomas Reynolds features reasonably priced contemporary artists, several of whom paint San Francisco and California scenes.
