He has been actively painting for a living for the past twenty years.  One of the most valuable designs has been the Buffalo Murals.  He has hand painted over a million buffaloes and half a million horses. All commissions were treated equally in devotion, honesty, and true feeling with inner inspiration as well as any commission design.  He treats all his work with equal respect.  Painting is his life projected with inspirations of the whole wide world of the mysticism and the spiritual interconnectedness with guidance.
