When teaching art at the Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram, Texas, he was the guest at the Lapham Ranch near Camp Verde, Texas where my mother Ella Maie Lapham lived and she originally brought Fred there to teach. She was the Chair-Person then and Lifetime Member. I found Fred very enjoyable and intelligent. He was a fine artist and person and his paintings are fabulous.
