Only after retiring did David finally indulge in his lifelong love of drawing, and then one day he decided to add some colour - and so it went, one painting after another. He has had no formal education in the arts whatsoever, and is totally self taught.
He is currently following a path which is taking him through early sailing ships and great lakes excursion boats of the late 1800 and early 1900's with a nostalgic look into the early waterfronts of the small towns that dotted the shores of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron.
More recently he has been wandering from the water to the air with paintings of early military aircraft circa WWI, and the early combats in which they were involved.
