And in the beginning:  Art from my teen years... 

In a life class over a summer at the Art Institute of Chicago, age 14 

Themed national contest winner of some kind, age 16 

My first oil: Rudolf Nureyev, who inspired me in such a SPECIAL way, age 17

The inimitable Hermione Gingold during our time in OH DAD, POOR DAD... age 19

 

One thing I always intended to do was paint my dear friend and mentor Leon Katz and, on January 23, 2017 when Leon passed at age 97, I felt as though I missed an opportunity to do so and share with him, through my art, my love and appreciation for Leon’s intelligence, his wit, his passion to be an outsider in the best possible way, and above all, his enormous heart. I’ll always be sad Leon never lived to see the portrait I soon after created that graced the program cover for Dr. Katz's memorial at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Los Angeles in June, 2017, but I sure hope the great man would be proud.
