Early in his career he was influenced by Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth.
 
  
He chose egg tempura for his early works and  painted portraits, not totally representational, but as he saw them.

Quite a methodical painter, he sometimes drew from slides of photographs projected onto a black box.  He then created a grid to transfer the picture to canvas or paper, sometimes reworking sections of the larger picture with pencil or ink.
 
 
By 1995 he had moved from portraits to abstracts, or specific abstracts, as he called them. Forever experimenting, he stacked layers of pencil drawings drawn on translucent paper to create a 3D effect.
 
 
In the late 90's he studied Cezanne's works and created paintings designed to emphasize Cezanne's use of line and color. He actually redrew Cezanne's painting with his own interpretation. He donated [["After Cezanne: Still Live with Flowered Pitcher"|Memorial Hall Library Original Art]], to Memorial Hall Library where it is hung on the stairway to the second floor.
