I'm a retired architect; living in the Charlotte, NC area. After a 40 year career in commercial architecture in the Midwest, my wife and I retired to the Carolinas to be closer to family; and for the warmer winters. Besides "grandparenting", volunteering and doing some independent consulting, I have indulged my creative impulses by taking up painting (again). Over the years I have painted a little in fits and starts but not in a consistent way. Now I am able to paint consistently and I'm enjoying it more than ever.
I think of myself as more of a hobbyist than professional. I am a member of the Guild of Charlotte Artists, and I submit paintings for public display at most of their shows.
I hope you see something here that you like; perhaps you will be inspired to make some art of your own.
