Description The landmark stands at the edge of Pearblossom Highway in California. Many pass by without thought as to it's historical significance, but it is a memory of the small community of Llano that once thrived as an oasis in the desert. Only remnants remain of the people who lived here as a close knit group that proved that you can thrive in the middle of nowhere if you put your mind to it. They had their schools, baseball teams, farms, aqueducts, silos and... government. Alas... squabbles and turmoil among the group destroyed the experiment. Only the shadows of a day gone by remain. It's just another reminder that 'The grass withers, and the flower fades... but the word of the Lord abides forever.' 1 Peter 1:24-25The Mountains of San Bernardino and Angeles National Forest are the backdrop.

A Little Bit About Me
I became immersed in the business of art in 1989 as an owner and operator of three art galleries. Before that time, in the late 1970's, I was a marketer for Christian Graphics and Designs. Now, in the 21st Century, I have landed as a recorder and instigator of the imagination.
What I Do
I strive to capture scenes, moments, places or thoughts... and share a lasting impression to the viewer! My niche is not necessarily found in one style or theme ... but in the scenes that many might just pass right on by without noticing the small pleasures that they afford. Living life to it's fullest includes noticing those things, places or concepts that we take for granted. Perhaps we need to pause a bit more and enjoy a hot beverage along the way.
