I had a reawakening and a passion to paint after putting down the brush for over 40 years! I couldn't get into the Commercial Art program after studying art for a year at Virginia Commonwealth University. So, I took a degree in Advertising and Mass Communications. Either that or wait another whole year, since art school was full up. But, now I am doing what I had wanted to do for over 40 years. Oil paintings with an emphasis on the masters techniques. Large scale is a favorite with me. 3 by 4 feet canvases.
