At the invitation of a friend in 1985, I traveled to Southern California and met an authentic California girl. We married, prospered, and had a wonderful marriage that ended in 2004 after my wife’s illness. Retired, I’m active in my church and volunteer at two local teaching ministries. I also like supporting friends in their music and artistic endeavors and, lately, rediscover my art skills.” – Christopher Allan Weaver, editor.
On March 18, 2019, Christopher joined the Santa Clarita Artists Association, attended a watercolor demo, and met with several members.
