Painting in oil and photographing from age twelve, having learned my skills BC, I am a living relic. I still do almost everything by hand except when using my digital cameras. Happily married for over twenty three years, my Gloria is both confidant and critic. I still paint in oil. My critics tell me that I'm a person of harsh contrasts. At one time I painted up to 40 canvases and 20 illustrations a week. Now that I'm disabled, I manage to maybe paint six canvases a year.
