I have lived in Colorado for most of my life and I am now living in southeast Colorado. I've been passionate about painting since the age of 14. I am 63 years old and I intend to spend the next 30 years painting, so I am shooting to live to the age of 93. My favorite medium is oils, although I do experiment with water color. I paint mostly still life and people, but I will do an occasional landscape. I learned painting from books by artists I admire and from looking at paintings. My art is my show and tell. It not only says, "Look what I see!" It says, "Look how I see it."
