An Artist's World free pdf Eighty-seven-year-old lifetime artist Dan Wetta, a career accountant (who lived a distinctly different life through his art work, put his dreams and unique vision of the world to canvas and paper throughout his life. With watercolor, oil, acrylics, pen and ink, and even crayons, the artist recorded the life he saw, a life framed by a childhood in New Orleans and an education in a Louisiana seminary. He entered St. Joseph's seminary just before the start of World War II where he received his high school and junior college education. He joined the Army after graduation and continued college education at night in Richmond, Virginia, where he married Martha and raised his two sons. Over the years, the artist took art classes and private instruction and exhibited his work in many public showings, including The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. His art explores a vast variety of themes laced with humor, satire, spirituality and immense respect for life. This third volume of his art in paperback concludes the final set of his extensive collection of works. In here you find his stunning simulations of stained glass paintings on canvas, one of his most unique creations. This book contains more cartoons- a series of sketches done in art galleries, airports, and restaurants- some "mind-reading" portraits- and a sentimental look at time gone by. The artist is making available the entire collection of his works in one complete set or in three sets as contained in his three print volumes: An Artist's Life, An Artist's Vision, and An Artist's World. Enjoy also the artist's seven-volume-ebook series of this collection, El Artista: A Lifetime of Curiosity. Website: http: //danielwetta.com/master-artistauthor-dan-wetta/

About MR Dan Wetta

I was born on October 10, 1927, and I grew up during the Great Depression of the 1930's. I enlisted in the army in 1946 and was stationed at Camp Lee, Virginia, near Richmond, where I met my wife and settled down. My father was a commercial artist, a steel and copper plate engraver for Dameron Pierson Stationery company in New Orleans. He was foreman ot their printing department. One of his tasks was to engrave printing plates to create paper money for Central and South American countries. I began drawing and painting as a child, but did not want to become a commercial artist like my father because I wanted to paint things that interested me, so I made a living as an accountant-auditor. I have exhibited at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and was a member of the Richmond Artists' Association for about fifteen years. We used to have fun exhibiting at malls until one day a City of Richmond Sales Tax Agent came by with a note pad and began writing down the names of artists who did not have a sales tax license. When I got the city license, the IRS required me to file a quarterly FICA tax form, and the State said I had to have a business license, and then the malls got worried about liability, so they made us buy liability insurance. Rules and regulations were taking up so much of my painting time that I said, "To heck with it, and I quit exhibiting." As a result, I have acumulated quite a few paintings over the years.
