I have always loved art and oil paintings since I first saw them. I was determined to be able to portray nature’s beauty. I have learned what to do from many wonderful artists who ar outstanding in portraying art. I have had the support of a knowledgeable and understanding wife who has been a great help to me. Many people have encouraged me by purchasing art. It has brought joy into my life and into those who display my art. I am very pleased with what I have been able to do in painting landscapes, trappers, Indians, wildlife and westerns.
