Jack Rhodes, Santa Rosa, CA Member Since March 2017 Artist Statement I graduated from UCLA and worked as an Electrical Engineer for 40 years during which time I took numerous art classes ( drawing, design, watercolor, life drawing, print making, painting). I retired a number of years ago and since then have applied more time to painting. I do portraits, figurative work and abstracts. I use charcoal, pencil, black and colored ink, pastels, and acrylics. Within the last few years, I have exhibited my work seven times and completed a number of commissioned portraits.
