Yaeger is self-taught, using his science background to observe and interpret the natural world…in particular wildlife. He started to paint in oils about the same time he started to teach. When he showed his paintings to a colleague (an art teacher who painted and drew in the traditional, old-world method) he was told that most anyone can paint…drawing with a pencil is the challenge. Yaeger accepted the challenge, picked up a pencil and has been drawing ever since. In fact he is now producing works of all subject matter in oil, watercolor, pen & ink, graphite, and charcoal. His drawings appear in his own published children’s book, “Ian and the Woodins,” and he has been doing well in the cachet field. He has never won an award for his work, but, as he says, “Neither did Van Gogh.” Yaeger’s philosophy on his art is simple: “I don’t use fanciful titles or descriptions. I just paint and draw subjects that I find pleasing and hope that the viewer finds the finished work equally so.”075p2_xlg.jpg
