|Self portrait 1941.|
(Blogger: Tears? In this portrait we perceive a straight-forward man saying confidently, with a touch of annoyance, "I paint what I see.")

|Arbor Day 1932|
|Birthplace of Herbert Hoover|
|Spring In Town 1941|
Having driven across America eight times before becoming a blogger, performing in more than 1000 cities and towns in the United States, the pictures on this blog are only a few of the many scenes that live in my mind.
