I have been drawing since I was a young man but most of my work has been completed in the last 15 years or so. I like to draw but have to be inspired to do it. I have taken few classes but for the most part, I am self trained.
I have been pushing a pencil or a pen around since early childhood. Mostly, I like to pen and ink but occasionally, I'll do a watercolor and sometimes combine the two. Most of my work are landscapes but lately I have started doing animals.
I draw a pen and ink landscape each year to use to create a personalized Christmas card. These cards usually refer to an event or a place that has meaning for me during the year. This last year's card included a country store near the church where my father grew up. I added the old truck because I like them and also added the tobacco farm because my father farmed tobacco. Other drawings and paintings are done either by request or because I decide I want to do them. All of my drawings have a Cross embedded in them.
