Peter is very active in the Capital District Art community, having served as the president of the Bethlehem Art Association for 5 years.
“I loved to draw as a kid; airplanes, cars, horses were my favorite subjects. But education, family and career responsibilities intervened until fifteen years ago, when came the glory of retirement. Drawing skills are critical in art. Drawing classes by Stanley Maltzman at the Greenville Public Library and participation with the Tuesday Night Sketchers at that library have been a tremendous help to me. For quite a while I worked primarily with pastel, which I see as an extension of drawing. During this last year I’ve been moving toward the use of acrylics. I had some trouble with the medium at first, but there are YouTube videos that can help with just about anything. Perhaps some day I will settle on a style, but for now I’m just having fun with different mediums and techniques.”
