Music is the universal language ~ it touches every heart and soul.

Happy Faces at the 2009 Summer Concert in York Beach, Maine on the east coast.  Piano, guitar and flute students got together and played the opening number from High School Musical "We're All In This Together".  We learn to perform solo and with groups !!  So much FUN!!!!!!!!

    Rene Arbogast ~ Musician and Artist
    It is my dream to help every child reach the pinnacle of their abilities in life. The only subject one can study to develop the brain is piano. Hockey and Soccer do not develop bridges to develop both sides of the brain equally, thereby boosting one's I.Q. and reading and math aptitude. With the study of classical piano, any child can achieve whatever they dream of being when they grow up. Perhaps one day America will insist on education that works and begin preschool children on classical piano, and continue this study through all twelve years of education. Then imagine what a world we could create. Imagine.

    BENEDETTO'S PASSION
    This is a four foot by six foot window, original design, built on site at the Benedetto compound in 2009. It took me about four and a half months to complete, and install. This was my first serious commission in the Boston metroplex area, and she currently sits in the dining room window at Sante Benedetto's home. He is a true bird fancier, and admires their great beauty, serenity, grace, and elegance in every way. I thank him for believing in me, as an artist and for giving me the work I've always dreamed of creating. Stained glass adds beauty to your home for generations to come.

    Fun on the guitar!! Learning to play and perform with others requires a totally different set of listening skills, the ability to feel the rhythm, and play your part of the song while other's are playing something totally different. This takes heightened listening skills, discipline and practice, and the desire to sound good together!! Making a CD with your group is a wonderful creative experience for everyone involved.

    ~ STAINED GLASS ~
    The inspiration for stained glass designs usually comes through me via nature, on a hike with my mini-man Sir Hef Hunchenhips, breathing in the primal velvet forests of the great northwest, images flood my mind with whatever my mind brings forth. This one in particular is called Persian Persuasions as it is influenced by middle eastern music, culture, architecture and designs.

Custom Stained Glass Panel  ~Nick & Pat Payne ~

Commissioned to Match Transom over Front Door

Nick and Pat wanted the commissioned stained glass to help subdue the blaring sun with a panel that somewhat matched their existing transom, over the front door.  See photo to the left.  The design I used is above us, and the completed window is to the right.  It was a wonderful project with English Muffled Glass, a throwback to old english manors and such.  These are still crafted as they were hundreds of years ago, and transport one into the world of chilvary and romance :-)

4 Panel Entrance Way

Four Panel Egret ~ Perched on Lake Whatcom

This elegant four panel entrance way was commissioned by the Ebenals.  I began the designing process in June, 2018, and we just completed the installation this January 11, 2019.  The bird's spirit flies free on the break of dawn, and she finds her tranquility on the shores of the Ebenal residence.  The artist was given free reign in every aspect, as soon as we came upon the object d'art ~  the egret.  It is impossible to put into words the labor of love that each and every piece of these panels found.  Pictures do indeed, speak a thousand words.....

The Main Door

The front door has a door closer installed to protect the egret from becoming a victim of a slammed door.  An absolute must when installing a work of art in your entrance way.
