I felt like a little 6-year old kid at his own birthday party last night July 19, 2019 as hundreds of friends and collectors showed up at the Sears Art Museum at Dixie State University. The occasion was my talk and powerpoint presentation about my 40 year retrospective art exhibit. I was able to share in words and photos stories behind the 110 paintings on display and talk about the impact that others have made on my life as an artist. It was a fun evening, with laughs as well as tears. There are so many people to thank. My children and grandchildren were there too along with my ever-supportive wife Nellie, brothers and sisters Andrea, Lorin and Marsha, nieces and nephews and hundreds of art collectors and friends. Glen Blakley and Kathy Ceislowicz introduced my talk and so many helped put the show together. Thanks to everyone for a great 40 years!
