Daniel began painting later in life, at the age of 66 years-old.
"He would look at a picture and say 'I could do that'," Tamara Read, Arts Council member, said.
Daniel's art not only makes use of traditional canvases, but uses items such as wood and bricks. Daniel is known for his rooster, razorback, and cat paintings, along with other phases of art interest he went through in his career, showing lively interpretations of the characters.
His art can be seen in galleries across the United States. His combination of color and simplistic vision allows for a fun appreciation of art.
