ART & IMAGES

Though I’ve been drawing and taking pictures since my early teens, I first began painting seriously in the late 1970’s. I learned watercolor techniques and methods from self instruction books and began to take workshops from professional painters in the 1980’s. I was introduced to oil painting by helpful colleagues in California in the late 1990’s through 2003.   I’ve learned the most about painting from Tad Spurgeon, a master of the craft.
