How did the concept of painting historical golf landscapes develop?
In 1995, I was commissioned to do a cover for the Geoff Shackelford’s upcoming book, The Captain, about the great golf course architect, George C. Thomas. The painting of Riviera’s 6th c. 1926, was well received by the publisher, Sleeping Bear Press. Sleeping Bear suggested two more books that would involve golf landscape painting. The first, The Golden Age of Golf Design, was published in 1999. The second, The Art of Golf Design, appeared in early 2002.
