Miniature Painter Inducted into Senior Hall of Fame

Ed Cook had a successful corporate career and now at the age of 79 he reaffirms his success in his second career, miniature painting. Cook has been inducted into the Illinois Senior Hall of Fame for the Arts for his work using 2 3/4 by 4 1/8 inch canvasses.  When he’s not painting he is teaching the art of miniature painting, and when he is not teaching he is studying for a certificate in botanical art. Most recently he has begun teaching classes on World War I. “I tell people I am starting my third career,” he said.
