My work has been labeled as and is exhibited with the Western Genre Painters, in that I paint the "West" of the 18th century (as America explored further west from the colonies). Because of this label I enjoy inclusion in two noted invitational museum shows every year. The Autry Museum's Masters of the American West exhibition and the Eiteljorg Museum's Quest for the West. My work is displayed beside that of the best painters of this Western Genre, enabling me to receive an occasional award as well. Magazines have written articles about me and my work. I am blessed and very appreciative!

Because my paintings are extensively researched, they enjoy an additional status. These images are often used in documentary films, in books or articles about history, and in high schools and universities as visual reality to the written word. The original paintings hang in various museums and at historical sites as well as the homes and offices of numerous private collectors.

After fifty plus years of painting and numerous awards I am proud to be associated with the Art Renewal Center.
