"His acute impressionistic paintings are a visual record of history, reinterpreted through memory and the hand of the artist, a combination of lore and fact, folk and sophisticate, ideal and actual."
--Mary Thomas, from the introduction
"The expert craftsmanship and keen storytelling in his body of work make it a notable addition to our disappearing roadside culture and, even more so, to the world of art."
--John Baeder, painter and author of Diners, Sign Language, and Gas, Food & Lodging
