During the late 1990’s and the first five year of the new century I made many drawings, digital prints and photographs of the World War II Observation Towers on Cape Henlopen, Delaware. These were created to defend the ports of Wilmington and Philadelphia from possible incursions of German U boats into the Delaware Bay. They were, however, never used for that purpose. Instead they did aid in the rescue of people from storm-damaged ships. Today they stand as silent sentinels, testament to our expensive and mistaken attempts to protect ourselves from foreign aggression.
After I retired in 2005 I began work on a new body of work based on the elements of light, earth, air and water as expressed in photographs and pastel drawings of the Atlantic Ocean at Cape May, New Jersey, Cape Henlopen, Delaware and Southeast Florida.

work as I have time. I will also add to the posts as new drawings are
