Birds were a common subject in Fred's art, as he was always inspired by watching and interacting with them. At different points in his life, an owl, a homing pigeon, or an injured bird was in his care.
Northwest artist and graphic design instructor, taught at Burnley School of Professional Art & Art Institute of Seattle from 1960 - 2010. His work was shown in many Northwest galleries throughout his career.
I believe a painting should have an attractive quality from afar. The image should have a thoughtfulness that reads further into the painting, that rewards the viewer who wants to think about it. In other words – attraction with meaning.
