Award winning oil painter. Eastern Sierra Nevada mountains near Reno, Nevada.

"How dull might the world be without clouds and mountains and trees? How utterly drab without people, animals, lakes and streams? And how lifeless the walls that surround us without paintings of such things to take their places when we can’t immediately go and see them?

"I am compelled to paint such things; inspiring things that evoke memories or spark the imagination keeping the insipid well at bay…" - Mike Callahan
