Illustrations

I paint large canvases to engage engineering students. This gas turbine under construction is the largest in the world.  In combined cycle, it produces 575 Megawatts.  This is acrylic on canvas, 60″ x 72″ and hanging in the north stairwell of the Duke Centennial hall.

Here is a microelectronic circuit painting I did for a potential book cover of the same name.  It is acrylic on a 48″ x 72″ canvas.

Here is a smaller painting of a Ferrari 458 Italia.  It is only 36″ x 24″.  It seems much brighter in real life.

Here is a smaller C6 Corvette of Dr. Hill’s.  It is only 36″ x 24″ and is hanging in the ME office.  It also seems much brighter in real life.

I also like to paint botanical watercolors as I am working on a book called “A Field Guide to Woody Vines of Eastern North America”.

This is an acrylic painting of a Ferrari Testarossa (Red Head) engine designed by Columbo in the 1950’s. It was only my second acrylic and it is 48″ x 72″.  You can find it hanging in the north stairwell of the Duke Centennial Hall.

Here is another painting that was hung in the Duke stairwell.  It is also 48″ x 72″.

Can you guess what it is?

Here is another painting that was hung in the Duke stairwell.  It is also 48″ x 72″.

A couple of years ago I had a “Art Show”.  It might still be found at

At least it was there last time I checked.
