Don graduated from Penn State University in 1974 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He now lives and paints in The Great Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina.
Much of his inspiration comes from life experiences which he then applies to nature scenes with an added twist. The paintings have a colorful luminosity which seem to tell a story with several plot lines. His paintings have an ethereal quality and offer a moving and personal experience for each individual viewer. There is no right or wrong interpretation.
By using vibrant colors and stable shapes within shapes, each painting tells a unique story. While viewing his paintings, one will see the invisible and feel a darkly glowing aura in contrast with the festive celebration of life that all of his paintings exhibit.
