he is a remarkable artist who specializes in the rocky terrain and landscapes of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah.  He can paint the greeting card, very scenic picture of a landscape as well as closeups of rocks that look really abstract.  The artist was born in 1937 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He got his college level art training in California and Arizona. The artist started drawing his local landscape at the age of 8. The artist works mainly in acrylic on canvas.
