Orginally from New Jersey, Carl and his wife Phylis have been full-time Cape residents since 2000.  He has been an artist and musician since childhood, more than sixty years, and majored in art in college.  He then made a decision to pursue a professional career in business, which continued until  a severe stroke at age 52. After a lengthy but complete recovery, he now spends his time painting vague pictures and making remarks, of which some are witty and some, not so much.
