Press release description of one of my gallery exhibitions in Chelsea, New York, New York.

" The wife of the great American Artist Edward Hopper once said of him, "It took me a long time to realize that when he is looking out the window, he is working." This rare meditative observation and piercing insight into what lies beyond the artist's studio unites Washington state artist Daryl Jay Frank to the brilliant Modern Master. Both artists concentrate on the revelatory of distinct American life _ in both the celebratory and the challenging times. His paintings display the vivid realistic eye one might expect from an expert photographer, with pictures that tell a rich and detailed story, primarily centered on those individuals who populate the art.It is the whole sphere of American life that Mr. Frank makes public."

I have just finished and am currently working on publishing my first children's book. I wrote the story and illustrated it. It is titled " The Apple That Would Not Fall From the Tree."

I studied at The University of Miami, Fla., Northern Illinois University & The Evergreen State College.

I have exhibited many times in New York City, Wash ington State & California.
