These drawings have been very valuable subject matter in many of his acrylic and oil paintings. His numerous commissions can be found in many private collections throughout the United States.

As a "plenair" artist you can find him sketching at a campsite one afternoon and then painting a "House Portrait" on location the next two days. Alan's interest in all forms of architecture and its relationship with its natural surroundings is a reoccuring theme in his art.
