About Paintings by John


   That's what a friend said when I showed my first paintings a couple of years ago.  

  Certainly not me. 

  I had admired the well-regarded paintings of my aunt Marian Holton of Kennett Square, PA, but never thought of trying it myself.  A happy, healthy retirement brought me to the Osher Lifelong Learning Center in Wilmington, DE years later.  With a lot of encouragement from instructors and fellow students, I started on this enjoyable journey.

  I paint what I see, doing the best I can to reproduce what my eyes behold. The process is as gratifying as the product, and has added another layer of richness to my golf and fishing travels.

  Hope you enjoy these.
