I started painting after I had surgery to remove some cancer that I was diagnosed with. My mother was in town visiting and she paints also. I wanted something to pass time as I was recovering. So, we took a trip to the art store and I started painting. I've been told I have a hidden talent. Maybe, it's not so hidden anymore. I've always wanted to be able to paint but never tried. I've always had this feeling and inclination to paint.
I'm married to a wonderful woman and have five children.
