My artistic focus is a bit like a pin ball and has taken me down several roads of interest including, oil painting and water colors, pottery, furniture repair and general tinkering, bookbinding, acoustic rhythm guitar , blues and finger picking, acoustic guitar repair, carpentry, woodworking and woodworking tool restoration, and so on. I never know where I am headed next.

I do feel lucky to be able to enjoy and experiment with all of it, some explored deeper than others. At this time I am still having fun with guitar...
