Recent Work

Elevation sketches for a custom house:

First study for the entry elevation to determine masses and composition of the portico.

Revised entry elevation with added cupola and window bays

Currently doing preliminary designs, and preparing presentation drawings for design review. I will post more as the project continues.

Interesting Photo Of The Day

What is odd about this photo?

A favorite photo of mine; probably Mindanao during the late twenties or early thirties. This guy means business.

Answer: Not the guy with a bone in his nose, a floral arrangement sprouting from his head and holding a machete. He's at home, so it's the plane that's the oddity. The DeHavilland DH84 Dragon is probably a plane of the Imperial Air Service, which operated in the Southeast Asia at the time. Lack of wheel fairings suggests that it is an early model.


Some recent blooms in our yard:


Recent blooms in our yard:
We grew this climbing rose from a cutting taken from my grandmother's garden in Syracuse in 1994.

We have a few David Austin roses in the yard; we really like the English Roses for their big, multiple blooms. This one is Scepter'd Isle
Another David Austin rose; this one is Graham Thomas
