For a short time when I was 8 or 9 years
old, I started art lessons with a well know teacher in Long Beach, CA,
My wise teacher said to me, "You can make wax crayons look like oil
paint if you work at it".....and I am still working at it.
These days, I've set up shop in beautiful,
Lake Almanor, California, where the four seasons create a wonderful
environment to exercise a wide variety of artistic mediums. With each new crayon
painting, I strive to blend and layer the colors as you would an oil
painting. to create familiar scenes
and textures out of these simple sticks of wax….the fur on a pet, a flannel
cloth, a glass of beer, or a piece of fruit.
For the serious follower,

be transferred to a step by step lesson on paining a green apple with
crayons, in a “fine art” manner.
