In the hot summers and cool springs and falls of Northeastern Minnesota, Joe grew up hunting, fishing, and trapping. From his dad and with his brother, he developed a healthy  comfort and respect for the wilderness and rustic environments.  Painting the animals that came around, just made sense. Moose were always a fascination to Joe (and pretty much everyone else).
