One year MCAD 1976. Life Drawing 2006 Landscape workshop w/ Ceciele Hartlieb 2007 Cast Drawing Aetlier Lack Plien Aire workshop w/ Brian Stewart 2008 Painted with Bob Bonawitz and Ivan Zasstavitski Both of whom graciously gave me their help and time,and provided a lot of laughs painting together in what is usually a solitary pursuit! The best experience I have is the countless hours out observing and painting nature. I try to depict nature the way I see and feel it. It is an Honor and a privelige to be able to have the Life of a Painter.
