Waiting, the painting on the cover of Zenith Rising is used with the permission of the artist, Warren Dreher. Warren is a painter working in oils and pastels. He lives in Concord, California. His career as an artist is defined by his penetrating interpretation of the San Francisco Bay Area's distinctive light and the brilliant, almost other-wordly colors which that micro-climate produces.
Warren was educated at Rhode Island School of Design, and has lived in California since 1978. His works are widely owned by various galleries, museums and private collectors. You can view his extensive portfolios at WarrenDreher.com.
