After writing two books and more than 3 million words as a reporter, I’m seeking another way to share stories. My painting of Martin Luther King Jr. is an example, completed days after Linda and I stood at the hotel window where King was assassinated 50 years earlier. I considered King the most eloquent and outstanding leader of my life. His quote about love and hate so profoundly relates to what’s happening in the United States today.

My first book was about ace pitcher Charlie Root and the 1929 Chicago Cubs. It all started five doors down from my childhood home when I found my own personal Moonlight Graham.
"Love, Grandpa" is a memoir and a Christian non-fiction account of what happened when I reached death's door in April 2017.

The “Art” tab is my way of tracking progress as I learn and try to improve.
I hope it inspires you to try to paint or pursue a fulfilling passion without fear of failure.
