Since his retirement in 1991, he has dedicated most of his time to learning and experimenting with color, while developing his own painting style. He is one of the artist demonstrators at the annual Southland Art Association Festival of Art Show and has been conducting oil painting workshops at Taylor Ranch in Montebello since 1993. His work has won "Best of Show" in several competitions, including the San Gabriel Fine Arts Fall Show, the Annual Art Festival in Montebello and the Wilshire Square's Annual Art Street Festival in Santa Ana. Tuesday's meeting will be the last for the Downey Art League's season until September.
