The Second Act Artworks is all about Art for a Cause. As a lifelong volunteer, I’ve seen firsthand the impact organizations have in their local communities and habitats. When I retired from more years in public relations that I’m willing to count (ran out of fingers and toes…) I wanted to do more to make the world a better place. This is one of the ways I’m doing it.

You won’t find my paintings in any gallery. I sell directly, online, or through art shows. If the sale is direct or through this website, I work with the buyer on a mutually agreeable charity to benefit from the sale of the art. If the sale is from another online platform, or from an art show, then I choose the charity. Groups that have benefited to date are in the areas of serving women and children in need, unhoused and disabled veterans, environmental causes, and social justice organizations.

Please browse around and see if anything I’ve done strikes your fancy. Let’s talk about what you’re looking for in a piece of art to grace your home or office. I am always looking for new ideas for paintings, and I have done several commissions from photographs provided by the buyer. I also have a large amount of wonderful photos I’ve taken in my travels that I can turn into that perfect painting for you.

Mission San Carlos Boromeo in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. In oils on Belgian linen canvas.
