painting both oil and acrylic paintings on canvas along with water colors as well as abstract mixed media pieces.

A natural talent, this videographer took a paint brush in hand about
thirteen years ago. Never having painted before, Lar took off for
realms beyond his wildest dreams. Shackelford continues to work with
video of his own artistic creations from his travels, for fun, or family archives. He is still widely known across the Southwest and respected for his expert TV video technique in shooting sports, particularly football. Be it brawn or blossom, Lar uses his creativity beautifully, each piece in it's own unique spectrum.
