For years I had been inspired by a photograph of President Reagan's Arabian Stallion, El Alamein. Little did I know that I would have the rare opportunity to create a portrait of this beautiful horse and to present the artwork in person to President Reagan for his birthday in 1995. It was the experience of a lifetime, and the opportunity to give something very personal to a great horseman. For the complete story - view the " Tribute" page.
I have been interviewed on several local news programs, as well as ESPN's Sports Look with Roy Firestone in 1990.
