15. What is the most important thing in your life? The most important things in my life are my family. JoAnne and I have been married forty-three years, I think. She is my partner and best friend. I have two children that I love to pieces, Kathryn and Chase. We have three dogs and several cats, and I must include painting, always seeing the world through an artist’s eyes, has been a true blessing I think.

16. If you could go back in time, which scene of your life would you like to live again and why? If I could go back in time I would choose 1974. I was finally living a dream of majoring in studio art. I had a little house in the barrio of San Angelo I rented for 50 dollars a month and I could stay up all night painting. Just like I do now, come to think of it. But I would like to be a strapping 25-year-old again. Its good karma for me to be doing exactly what I always wanted to do. Paint to my heart’s content.
