Paintings in Oil & Acrylic by Artist



On Display October 3 through November 9, 2013



Originally from Wyoming, Bob’s appreciation of mountain landscapes came naturally from living in his home state and many residencies in the United States and foreign countries.  His many business trips to Europe and the Far East provided an additional appreciation for various landscapes.  Bob excels in creating oil landscapes, Southwestern Desert scenes, and Abstract paintings using acrylics.


Bob’s first career was in the United States Army. He was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant after graduating from the University of Wyoming.  During his military service he was stationed in Germany, United Kingdom, Korea and Viet Nam and United States Army Installations in the states of Alaska, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Texas and Virginia.  He retired from active duty as a Colonel after 25 years.

As a civilian Bob began a second career in the Aerospace Industry.   He was selected as the Program Manager for the United States Army’s first operational Command and Control System that was installed in an overseas location. He continued his career in the Space and Defense industry as a Program Development Manager for a major Department of Defense contractor until his second retirement in 2003.  He says “This retirement is the last one.”

After many years dreaming of and searching for the right retirement location, he and his wife Danice discovered McMinn County in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Southeast Tennessee. Fifteen years ago they settled near Etowah never to roam again.

Bob is currently a member of Tina Baker’s Art Class using the Bob Ross style and method of oil painting. He credits Tina as a most positive influence in his current paintings.
