There he studied oil painting under a mentor painter. 10 years of study of the French and early American Impressionists and would be the start of his passion for painting the world he sees. The technique is intriguing and energetic with Oil and resin brush and Pallet… forced Perspective and bold color and texture….all to invite and inspire the viewer into the scene.
