My father was an artist. He took classes at the California College of Arts and Crafts (Now California College of the Arts) in Oakland in the late fifties, where he met my mother, also an artist and craftsperson. He was very much influenced by Russian Icons and Christian themes, although landscapes featured in his early and late career.

I don’t have many pictures of his work and those I do have aren’t very good, but here they are:

1950’s

Forest

Forest Landscape, Water color, coffee and nicotine

1960’s

Christ

He also has a work in The Albatross (Berkeley’s Oldest Pub) that he created for them in the late 1960’s. They misspelled his name, and I am pretty sure that although they call the image “brownlady.jpg” that this is Christ, not a woman.

1970’s
