Beethoven MP3 2.34mb

Hi my name is Bill, I was born in Hamilton August 8, 1961 and grew up in and around the Hamilton area. I had a very early interest in art as a child and was influenced by my Uncle "The Artist" Bruce Emilson who was a very successful artist in the early 70's. I also have several cousins who are successful artists. I have always been passionate (obsessive) about my "Hobbies" . I bowled 10 pin most of my life, at a professional level and had a Lifelong passion over pool/snooker. I competed in the 2001 Canadian Snooker Championship and finished in the top 16 in Canada. I retired my cue for a paintbrush in July 2001 when I started Painting for the first time since Public School . I Presently Take Continuing Classes at The Dundas Valley School Of Art . Needless to say this new found Passion for Art has taken over my life . I'm an H.V.A.C technician by day , and an Artist always..
