Other Paintings

Painting is one of my hobbies.  I started to paint when my parents bought me a set of water color, a medium that I used exclusively until 2005, when I explored acrylic painting.  Sharing my paintings with my former students  is something that I began recently.  These are new paintings that I have done specifically for each former student.  The link to those that have been already done is shown in the right column.   I hope you enjoy them.
