As a retired teacher and manager, amongst many other positions, I tried my hand at writing and published 4 books. Following this, sitting around with little to do, I watched Bob Ross painting his wet-on-wet technique and gave it a go. After adopting and adapting this technique to my own style I got the ‘painting bug’. I enjoy oil painting, especially landscapes on stretched canvas and will diversify, slowly, into other areas like portraits.
The ultimate outcome for me as a writer, or artist, is to share my work with you: the public.
