I've been painting and drawing since I was a child. This is the earliest painting I still have around. When my dad opened his medical practice I painted this on scrap tongue in groove I found in the garage. I was 12 at the time and totally ripped off the images from the AMA journals he had laying around.

This painting of my father was done a few years after he died in 1981. I couldn't paint him for years, though I wanted to. He was a WW2 pilot and a physician and had a wonderful life force which I hope I hint at in this representation.
