Art by Corban LePell and visit to his home.

I visited with Corban LePell in Sept. of 2016 in Oakland,CA. We had first met back in 1955 at the Uni. of Nebraska when I was a student and Corban was also a student at UN. I was very impressed with him as he seemed to me the perfect idea of what an artist should look like. I bought one of his paintings and still have it in my home to this day.  We got back in touch by phone after all these years and talked often. He invited me to come out for a visit and I decided to go.  He had been a professor of art at Hayward State for 40 years and had changed his art style from expressionism to realism. We spent an afternoon looking through his flat files of his art work and old photos of him as I had remembered him in the 1950's.  I will add pictures here to recreate the day.  Corban passed away in May of 2018. I am glad we did reconnect before he left us.

New Collage work for 2018

I am busy creating a series of new collage works. Some will be sent to an exchange in New Zealand for a show there and I will receive some collages from other artists. It has spurred me on to do more art using old papers, photographs and pages of texture created with Citra Solve.  Below are some of the examples of my latest art.

Texture Photographs..

I love to take photographs of textures and old buildings. I have framed some for exhibits. Here is a selection of a few of them taken over the years.
