I opened Lazenby's Decorative Arts Studio in 2000 and have never looked back. Five years ago my daughter, Jennifer, stopped driving a UPS truck and came to work with her dad. She has truly been a blessing and has picked up 'most' but not all of my techniques.

owner of Lazenby's Decorative Arts Studio and Director at Artists on the Bluff, has begun a series of paintings entitled Genesis-seven panels, each depicting a day of creation in the beginning.
...
In his early days of painting, Lazenby journaled his experience of hearing a bird sing outside his window very late one night. After pondering why, it came to him that each bird is different in its own way.

Lazenby plans a two-man spring show of the completed Genesis series alongside artist Barry Graham, a former student who "received the gift as it passed.
