I started painting with acrylics about five years ago, so I am rather new to the arts world. I had one painting accepted for display at the Laurel Arts Guild show in Laurel, MD in the spring. I also will have about 10 paintings on display at the Meeting House Gallery in Columbia, MD in March. I primarily paint landscapes. I will retire from NASA in Feb., 2019 and plan to spend more time painting and displaying my artwork.
