"West End Hipster" Acrylic on Canvas 18x18 2015 The West End Hipster is his own passport to art.
"Sweetness and Beauty" Oil 30x30 2015 This is the second painting of my Korean painting symbolism study "sweetness and beauty". In Korea, people symbolically believe magnolia represent sweetness and beauty. I am still working very hard on reinterpreting the traditional Korean painting style using cephalopod ink and watercolor on rice paper using oil paints on canvas. This is a new challenge for me. I'm fascinated with the idea of re-interpreting painting styles from my ancestral roots.

"Wake Up Call" Oil 18x24
"Van Gogh Away, Winter!" Acrylic and Collage 12/2015
"Winter Visitor" Oil 11x14 December 2015 It's always wonderful to see cardinals after a big snowfall. The males with their beautiful red cloaks pop out against a background of pristine white snow. Magic serenity abounds in this ideal winter scene depicting the beauty of nature.
"Tears for Paris" Digital Photography 18x12 Nov. 2015 I was in Paris the week before the reign of attacks. I photographed the Eiffel Tower many times during my visit but this image expresses the grief and sorrow felt by all.
"December Walk" Digital Watercolor 11x14 December 2015 Pond reflections are always beautiful. One of my new tools is a watercolor application which can be applied to my photographs.
"Spray of Roses" Digital Photography 18x12 November 2015 I am experimenting with new software applications to produce various effects on my images. Some manipulations produced a Victorian feel to this spray of roses.

"Preserve the Old and Bring on the New" Iphonography 16x20 12/10/12 Leaving NYC I saw the beauty in the old church and the reflections in the new of the old. One builds upon the old to create the new.

"Changing of the Guard - Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - Hanoi, Vietnam" Ho Chi Minh is memorialized for his defeat of French colonialism and the subsequent reunification of the nation following the Viet Nam War. Unfortunately, Vietnam remains a very poor country, now tilting politically to becoming a corrupt Aristocratic Autocracy with wealthy Party leaders, similar to China. Ironically, because of the fear of an expansionist China, they seek better relations with the United States.
"Good Morning, Vietnam!" - Hanoi, Vietnam Digital Photograph December, 2015Shortly, after dawn, thousands of people pour out onto the streets to eat rice, generally prepared in shops or by women cooking a few portions and serving in small bowls right on the sidewalk.
"Breakfast Vender at Work - Hanoi, Vietnam" Digital Photograph December, 2015A typical shop is wide open to the street, regardless of the merchandize or service offered; venders live in small residences above their shops.
"Life in the Old Quarter - Hanoi, Vietnam" Digital Photograph December, 2015The “Old Quarter” extends for several square miles and is home to millions of people who live above their shops or right on the street. Literally millions of pedestrians, bicycles and scooters, a few rickshaws and very few cars — a cacophony of sounds, motion and smells, some fragrant — some not.
"The Flower Market - Hanoi, Vietnam" Digital Photograph December, 2015Extending for several blocks, the flower market is housed in large open warehouses or sold right on the street. It is difficult to understand how they remain fresh all day, let alone to fathom how thousands and thousands of flowers are brought into the city each morning (absent trucks) to begin each day. Bouquets are made individually by the shopkeepers on site.
"Tall Drink of Water - New York City" 35mm slide c. 1964My interest in serious photography was greatly expanded as I wandered the streets of New York with my camera while in college.
"Street Scene - New York City" 35mm slide c. 1964 It wasn’t hard to get children to “perform” for their picture.
"Fun on the Street - New York City" 35mm slide c. 1964 Kids often asked me to “take my picture!”
"Horse from Another Time" Photograph 16x20 2015
"Dragon" Photograph 24x24 2015
