                 People  often ask me:        "When did you  decide you wanted to be a painter"    I must have been 11 -12 years old when my teacher, Ms.Knudsen accused me of cheating   " on an assignment."     She said:   " that one of my parents had drawn the two pictures I   handed in."    That was it.   I had done something that was over and above what was expected of me !    From that moment on I wanted to be like the artist that came to my Village to paint the  old "House's"  and the two (still) operating  "Windmills."       

At the age of 14  (1939)    I started working as a farm hand.   Driving a team of horses from morning to night, working in the fields.    That life was what I wanted  to paint and that is what  still drives  me today.
