I was honored when this painting received a Best of Show at my art club's spring show at the Glendale Art Guild Gallery in downtown Glendale, AZ, a couple of days ago.

Congratulations William, your work is so neat.  You have such a steady hand.  Are you a surgeon by career?

Comment by William F. Martin on February 13, 2018 at 5:36pm

Haha.....No, I'm not a surgeon.  I was a color separator for the litho trade for about 40 years.  I'm also an ex-musician, having played Mandolin, 5-string banjo, guitar, and tenor sax, all of which require at least an average degree of dexterity, I suppose.  I'm the one on the left in the photo below.  MANY years ago, when I still had hair!

Thanks William for your history.  You were a handsome chappy way back when.  Wonder when bell bottoms will  take its place upon the stage again.

Hahahaha.....Well, those are "flares", in terms of the pants.  As far as I'm concerned, leisure suits, and flare pants were the best thing to come down the pike in terms of mens' clothing!   I am 80 years old now, and in that photo I was probably in my early 30's.  I'm still friends with Larry, and his wife (also on stage).
