Wow, it's been a long time since I've visited my own website.


I have a full art fair schedule for the remainder of the year and I pray I can meet many new people who will become my friends.

I will post my art fair schedule under the heading of "Hal's Art Showing At."

I've given up working with soft pastels (dusties).  I am concerned about the dust and I don't work with solvents.   I had two Uncles

A high school classmate just got his pilot's license for the first time.  He's 75.  Yes I'm a geezer and I
painted the following painting of his airplane as a token of his success.  His plane is the Ercoupe
out of the 1950 and still in it's military colors, when it was used for some military flight testing.



I depicted Bob's Bird flying over a fog shrouded New River Gorge, West Virginia.

Gus is my best buddy and the love of my life.  He's also the love of my wife's life as well. 

This site is about my efforts to produce representational art.
