Original Acrylic Paintings by John Burns
I did not start out as a child loving to paint or draw. I was 45 years old when after watching Bob Ross on TV, I decided to try my hand at it. It was not too bad for the first try, so I continued on. I attended three week long classes that Bob and his assistants provided. I became a Bob Ross certified instructor. I taught for about 8 years. I have been painting in oils but decided to try acrylics and have been painting in that medium ever since.

John will have his paintings specially priced to sell, since he will be moving on!
