Soon after retiring from a wonderful and challenging career in healthcare, Cliff Strother realized he needed a new activity to occupy his days. He decided to learn to paint, picking up the palette knife and oil paints and a commitment to learn by doing. "My rules would be no chemicals involved with cleanup, no classes or workshops, no fancy tools, and no advice or coaching," he recalls.
What has developed since then is a steady learning curve resulting in a growing passion that gets Cliff to the studio every single day. Cliff has been using his developing skills to recall and express through art his history as a child, a soldier, and a singular human voice.
