Moved my text from Word to Wikipedia...but did not realize the complexity of Wikipdeia until now. Working with all the rules and various editors and also with Wikimedia to add a number of photos of his paintings to the article has turned into more time than I had realized. I am still working to get what is required to get Dennis Blalock 's article approved and completed. Been working on this on Word, Wikipedia and Wikimedia for almost a year now, and it may take another year! Not giving up!! Been painting a little bit...but not a lot. However, just hung a show of 10 of my small works in my hallway show at the Meritus Hospital in Hagerstown. It will be on display thru July.
Hello....if anyone is wondering....I am still alive and well....however, I have not kept up my website because I am working on a biography for my ex teacher (Dennis Blalock) who died in Sept., 2015. Nobody else volunteered to do it so I am stuggling to learn Word (more difficult that I expected to insert pictures) to get it ready to submit to Wikipedia. When I get it completed, I will post it.

Just discovered on Google that someone in Russia copied the majority of my original "Paintings of Iceland" website and posted it online back in 2003. That original site has been lost, so I am delighted to find this copy. It does not show most of the text, but does show all of the paintings.
You can find it at

I was happy to learn all three of my entries were accepted. They are all landscapes from my trips to Iceland. I would post one but my computer is not yet repaired.
