At the end of World War II, Paul Casson was given advice by friends: to soothe frazzled nerves he should take up painting. More than seventy years later, he’s still at it, finding joy and serenity in capturing the beauty of nature with brush and oil. He carves and paints, birds, too, his work combining the delicate aesthetic sensibilities of an artist with the sturdy know-how of a naturalist and hunter.
