Dan's work runs the entire gamut of media and includes watercolor, pastel, oil pastel, pen and ink, oils, acrylics and mixed media and even sculpture in metal and stone. His work includes as subject matter landscapes, portraits, nudes, still lifes and wildlife. Dan has won top awards, the most recent being first place in a statewide competition at the Bardean Miniature yearly exhibit in 1996.
The judge for this particular competition was Wilson Hurley. In 1997, Dan won second place in this miniature competition. He has written and illustrated several bilingual children's books. The most recent book of his was published by the University of New Mexico in 1984 entitled Wildflowers Along Forest and Mesa Trails. Dan's most recent paintings are in oil pastel, the subject matter being the Rio Grande River.
Dan had a one-man show during the month of October 2004 at the New Mexico Art League on Juan Tabo NE in Albuquerque. The title of the show was Seasons of the River and included paintings and prints of the four seasons of the Rio Grande.
