About The Artist

Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States
Hello! I am a fine arts painter, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. My primary painting medium is oil and alkyd, and mostly I work in a representational style. My greatest challenge as a painter is to capture the effect of light; and my greatest joy as a painter is to accomplish that. Many thanks to those readers who have been following this blog since Day 1 (May 19, 2008). To those who are visiting for the first time today...Welcome, and thanks for dropping by!

Back in the 1960's, the Porter House Cafe was a 24-hour diner in the Route 66 town of Weatherford, Oklahoma, where Elvis Presley and his retinue would stop to eat on their Memphis-to-Las Vegas trip.

The Porter House Cafe was a Valentine Diner—a manufactured portable steel sandwich shop with 8-12 stools and a limited menu, popular from 1930-1970.

Now a museum, the Porter House Cafe displays a spiral notebook “guest book”, where Elvis signed his name on April 22, 1960, and left the comment “Cool Daddy.”
