Harold Wyman is a native of Haverhill, MA and has lived in the New England states, Maryland, Florida, Tennessee, and as far away as Arizona. The nature of his job required moving multiple times to the point his wife says she knew moving people by their first names. He traveled to Korea and Japan courtesy of Uncle Sam, and later back with his wife, Shirley and daughter, Pat, traveled to Canada, Mexico, toured the western states, and then to Rio DeJaneiro, Prince Edward Island, and Alaska. As they traveled, several cameras were always at hand. He photographed many scenes and successfully sold his framed prints for many years while living in Maine to his clients in the US and around the world.
Their daughter, Pat Daley, (a juried member of CCAC), is an accomplished stained glass craftsman and they learned the craft from her. They assisted in making stained glass lampshades, panels, other items in those chapters, and did all the photography for her “Stained Glass Step By Step” teaching book. Working on choosing the right color effect in a sheet of opalescent glass has helped him as a painter.
Harold and his wife took early retirement in the 1970s and their latest move was from Florida to Cape Cod to be with their only daughter and her husband in Yarmouth Port. They are both now in their ninth decade, are active members of Cape Cod Art Center and members of the Monday Painters of Dennis. When the Covid 19 virus closed everything, they were learning to paint with acrylics. The scenes here on Cape Cod are just beautiful and awe-inspiring with the changing ocean and he enjoys painting it along with other views he has enjoyed from traveling.
