Art is my Passion. I have painted since my youth. I was very much inspired by my High School art teacher Fred Olds who was a world renowned Artist and my Uncle Vic Runnels who constantly reminded me never to stop. After my service in Viet Nam I was challenged in my art and stopped for several years. It became clear my passion was still there so I enrolled in several College courses in art. I began painting Acrylics and Watercolors. I also draw monochromatic with charcoal and pencil.
Over the years I received National Awards with my art some of which were displayed in Washington D.C. and Chicago Ill. I have competed in a number of Art Contests through the Veterans National Art Competition with awards.
I paint for the love of it. I will never be a rich artist in money but I will be happy knowing I have touched the hearts and emotions of those who appreciate my art.
