A stately sweep of the mountains along the Jasper to Banff highway are the backdrop to my portrait. I painted that mountain scene following that colourful trip. It hangs in a private collection in USA.
Drawing and painting have been a lifelong avocation. As a young man I planned to become a graphic artist but art became a pastime instead. Visual pictures yielded to word pictures as I enrolled in theological training.I drove to college in a used '57 VW Beetle procured in trade for a painting. I never regretted my choice of altruistic service and in August 2008 I retired after investing forty-five years as a church pastor and denominational executive and obtaining master's and doctoral degrees. I picked up my palette and brushes and returned with passion to the canvas to paint the faces and the places of God's creation.
