While making his living as a photographer, he developed a distinctive style of watercolor painting before switching to pastels a number of years ago. His photography is nearly all of people while his paintings are of nearly everything but people. Landscapes, still life and flowers are all subjects for his painting. A descendant of an early California family, Ed is deeply connected to the history and geography of our area. His paintings attempt to capture the feelings and memories of growing up and living in this special area. Most of his paintings are of Monterey County scenes. He feels there is seemingly no end to the varies subject matter: from the coastline, to the missions, to the oak hills and farmland. Ed's paintings hang in private collections throughout California, the US and various foreign countries..
