I've been drawing since childhood. I'm a retired military pilot. When stationed in northern Maine I began to paint. I painted off and on for 30 years...mostly off. After being furloughed from the airline industry I began to paint daily. I've been doing that for three years. I strive for realism. I enjoy painting from old black & white photos, videos, and ancient sculpture. I'm now dedicating my web site at AlbaPaintings.com to painting the greatest generation. read more
