This particular painting was of myself on an outward bound hike with a group of youngsters. I felt that I had the world by the tail high on the ridge of the world. My wife owns this painting, it is the one she chose for me to paint for her.
I am hooked on portraits. I saw a woman's face in the newspaper and thought how neat that would be to paint. Having never painted before, I saw this as a challenge. I couldn't stop painting people and began with family photos getting better and better. Now my family says "me Next!" - "Nope - I'm next". When you have your family's acceptance - it's pretty much a busy life for me filling up their walls.
