    I've been involved in a great many interests thru the years. To keep from writing a book, a partial list in Chronological Order:

    Electrical (TV repair Tech back when we still used tubes), Amateur Radio Operator (WB2UQJ), Drag racing, Engine builder/Machinist. I was asked to and worked on designing fuel production methods in college via a Federal Gasahol research grant. (My engine experience and electronics were an asset to the team in designing the then leading edge fuel injection systems) I raced a 1966 Nova for several years. I've been involved in High Power Amateur Rocketry via Tripoli and certified Class 2. By L2 Cert rocket is Candy Green with violet/bronze flip-flop flames and nosecone. (Not a real good job but I WAS trying) .
    911 effectively put an end to that hobby, I now needed a powder magazine and live too near RR tracks for that.
    I've also been involved in Rock Climbing and Rock Climbing using a modified S10 Blazer. Fishing and Hunting, Competitive Shooting, Black Powder Shooting (Shoot Director for New York State Muzzleloaders Assn for many years), Computer design and construction, many electronic specialties and projects, Model aircraft of all sorts. I've always enjoyed challenging activities.

    Through all that, I have envied all of you (most here) that could pick up a pencil and reproduce their minds eye's visions readily. I wasn't gifted with that natural talent, and it never developed despite my continuing desire to become at least somewhat competent in drawing. I can represent anything Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulic, or Pneumatic at will, but I can't draw a decent person or car.

    Recently:
    Toward painting my model airplanes better, I replaced my 30yr old Badger ext mix paint sprayer with a real, albeit a cheap Airbrush. (It's a copy of the Iwata Micron C+).

    While waiting for my new airbrush, I started watching YouTube videos on the subject, and what started out as a desire to lay down a sharp coat of paint evolved into the desire to learn to execute my creative impulses in a proper manner. Largely responsible are Ed Kafka, who showed me how to flame a tank with One-shot and a brush.
    Also there's Ed Roth, Who interviewed VonDutch many years ago on film, back before he himself had become famous. VonDutch told the story of how he got started striping, back at his fathers sign shop. It was during the depression, and people would come it with poorly repainted cars, and ask if it could be 'touched up'. VonDutch covered the disk grinder scratches with a stripe, then mirrored it with a matching copy, disguising it's purpose as a cover-up. Next thing he new is people were paying him to paint lines on perfect paint jobs, and so it began... I was absolutely in amazed... hooked right then and there, but spent all night watching the rest of the 8 or 9 hours of tape in awe. The next morning I bought a striping brush, a lot of paint and vowed to learn one long neglected skill that I've avoided dealing with since 1965 or so. It was time for this 53 year old disabled engineer to learn how to draw. To create, beauty this time, not function. This has always eluded me, but there's a lot of helpful folks out there that seem to believe I can do this, and are willing to help.

    So, I'm just starting out, doing my dots, lines, and daggers.


    Looking forward to that 1st image that moves from my minds eye to the world, for all to behold.....
