100% disabled Vietnam Era veteran. Retired, but still trying to paint. The first painting that I sold was to a grade school teacher in the 1940's! I've been painting and working in the arts ever since - along with having to live a "real" life, that is . . . I enjoy the creative process and paint what I really like, whatever that may be at the time. I've sold hundreds of western and southwestern themed paintings, in various media, and prints, at gift shops and galleries in the Intermountain west.
