Dick Peterson is retired... the best part of being retired is that he gets to pursue his interests. Painting is his most recent challenge. His college roommate Charlie got him started and they paint once a week or so. Tim Horn is his favorite artist... if he could paint like anyone, it would be Tim!

Photography is a longstanding interest, dating from he darkroom chemical days. But now dick has joined the digital revolution and takes most of his photos with his iPhone... it's the camera you always have with you! Photography is a good complement to painting. Dick paints plain air but most of his painting is done in the studio from his photographs.

Pottery is his first love... mostly wheel thrown functional stuff like mugs and bowls. But increasingly he likes the flexibility that hand building provides.

Life is good in Winston-Salem, NC... "do what your like, like wha you do... :-)"
