At the invitation of a friend, I traveled to Southern California, then married, prospered, and eventually retired. With more time available, now I volunteer several times a week and support friends in their music and art endeavors. My own music interests have been enriched by participating in choral work over the past 30 years. Lately, I’m also rediscovering my art skills learned long ago, and encouraging others in their creative pursuits has helped stir up my own desires a great deal.” —Christopher Allan Weaver, artimusi.com.
On March 18, 2019, Christopher joined the Santa Clarita Artists Association, attended a watercolor demo, and met with several members.
