Danny is still active in the art world and still has his Gallery on
Ocean Avenue in Carmel, California, which will be celebrating 46 years
in the same location come October 2005. His wife, Carmen passed
away in June of 1990 and his children Linda and Gary are in professions
of their own.
Danny started back into bronze sculpture almost 20 years ago and
introduced the bronze Monterey Cypress tree with foilage including Jade
baked on enamel and bronze. It has been extremely popular from a
small freestanding to extra large wall hangers, plus commission pieces
which include his paintings, which he never stopped doing.
He, in fact, completed a full size portrait of St. Isadore for the new
community room at St. Isadore Catholic Church in Danville,
California. He has remarried and with his wife, Carol, goes
regularly to his gallery.
