Following my time out East I became more involved with my high school teaching career. I ran the mural club, New York city trips and the art nights. My students artwork was always shown in the Annual Woodbridge Fall Fair High School Art competitions. I even taught a figure drawing class for my students in the basement of the Woodbridge Public Library.
Lately I have reawakened my interest in painting with oils. I studied oil painting in my Ontario College of Art days. I have always wanted to learn the secrets of the master painters (Rembrandt, Rueben’s & Vermeer). I really like the artists from the Baroque era. I am presently studying under Paul Richard James, a classically trained painter, out of his Atelier in Hamilton, Ontario. I have recently completed a self portrait in this classical style.
