Oil Painting has been an activity I've enjoyed for many years. It was relaxing after working and living in Wisconsin where the winters are long and cold. When I retired, I became a full time RVer and did not have the space or time to paint. After settling in Alpine, I began painting again after a 10 year absence. A class at Sul Ross taught by Deborah Allison gave me the encouragement to proceed.
I enjoy driving around the Big Bend area, taking photographs and then transferring those pictures to oil. I particularily like to paint the desert and the many colors of the area--sunsets are a favorite. Nowhere I have ever lived before has the beautiful and striking colors of the Big Bend's sunsets.
