People often ask me: "When did you decide you wanted to be a painter" I must have been 11 -12 years old when my teacher, Ms.Knudsen accused me of cheating " on an assignment." She said: " that one of my parents had drawn the two pictures I handed in." That was it. I had done something that was over and above what was expected of me ! From that moment on I wanted to be like the artist that came to my Village to paint the old "House's" and the two (still) operating "Windmills."
At the age of 14 (1939) I started working as a farm hand. Driving a team of horses from morning to night, working in the fields. That life was what I wanted to paint and that is what still drives me today.
