Art & Culture
Living here in Southern Arizona, several years ago before our current border "situation", I decided to add a new series to my varied painting subjects - Portraits of American Citizens. The focus for this series is the combination of diverse cultures that make up America. Like other painting series that I work in, this one is continually added to. As a painter, making visual imagery in series instead of only singular works enables me to explore deeper into subject matter AND also personal painterly interests at the same time. That occurs by using Abstract, Figurative, or Expressionistic styling, and at times a mixture of them all.
Tucson Happenings is devoted to our local artists and have been publishing monthly artist profiles for years. This page will list many artists that have profiled since we went digital in May of 2015.

Sometimes money is the most practical gift you can give. Especially when you know that the recipient is saving up for something that’s important to them. However, there can be something a bit impersonal about giving a cash gift. The solution: $-Dollar Bill Origami! Or $10 bill origami, $20 bill origami, $100 bill origami, etc.
