About John:
John has been an Architect with a private practice since 1983 specializing in the design of custom single family homes. For the last four years, he has been making the professional transition into Fine Art.  He is able to bring some of the unique skills acquired as an architect to his oil paintings. Each painting is an experimentation in light, form and color; each one building from the previous works. Stylistically, his paintings combine the aspects of photo-realism and abstract art.

About Slow Dance:

Slow Dance is commentary about the passage of Time. During a visit to this ranch in Lakeside, CA, the first thing one notices is a 300 year old live oak tree in the front yard. Frozen in what appears to be a slow modern dance with time. Leaves swirling and dappled light dancing across the ground, one imagines what a 300 year time lapse video of this tree from its beginnings up to today would look like.  What stories it might tell, like the small drama unfolding in its presence. A young lady in the background with the shadow of a man in the foreground and a love seat under the tree. Is the man coming or going? It really doesn't matter in the framework of eternity.

Education:
Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University 1979
Licensed Architect- State of California 1983
Private Architectural Practice since 1983; many architectural awards and publications.
