I think my dad hoped I would become an architect and work with him and my grandfather in the family business, Peter Davidson & Sons General Contractors. They built many estates in Hope Ranch and Montecito, as well as schools, churches, and public administration buildings throughout Santa Barbara. In 1953 they completely restored the façade of the Santa Barbara Mission. Although I loved the smell of fresh wood and construction, I loved the smell of fresh oil paints and turpentine even better. I was inevitably drawn to fine art.
