In His Own Words "My dad placed a brush in my hand when I was three years old, and I never let up from there. I’ve been painting for 63 years, and have loved every moment. I learned “old school” by painting from nature, or painting from the live subject, or going on location. That’s when I formed my love for what’s known as “on location painting” or “plein air” as it is fashionably called today!."
