Some things do not change. This consummate realist painter and screenprinter is a minor revelation as he continues his wayward odyssey. He is still attempting to work to the best of his abilities, his cheerful nature and the pleasure he derives from art have not diminished in spite of those "occasional days" with "unknown reasons" that continue to loiter with intent.
