After dabbling with oils and watercolor painting for many years, Larry began to pursue watercolor seriously in 2001 with instruction through the Alexandria Art League. His work is representational and includes a variety of subjects including landscapes, still life, florals, and nautical scenes. He works in both watercolor and acrylics. An Arlington resident, Larry joined the Arlington Artists Alliance in 2014; his work may be seen in various venues and shows under the curatorship of the Alliance.
Larry retired in 2014 from a professional career in higher education administration and fund raising for a nonprofit homeless services agency. He continues to provide volunteer service with Arlington County homeless services agencies, and is a fund raising/grant writing consultant for nonprofit organizations.
