Self-taught and been drawing and painting for over 40 years. Many years in oils until had to switch to acrylics due to lack of room for wet oil paintings all over the small apartment.
I paint what I love and I love what is beautiful. Usually, that is snow scenes, animals, local birds, boats and fun memories.
