In 2007, after retiring, Curt returned to his art specializing in oil painting while taking advanced art classes at San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico. He credits his art instructor, Professor William V. Hatch, for inspiring him to renew his interest in art.
His first body of work that he calls the “Mountain Series”, depicts dramatic landscapes of mountains and other scenes found in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado where he enjoyed hunting and fishing as a boy. Using a digital camera, he has visited many sites of beautiful scenery where he visually surveys the area to obtain a feel for the terrain that he portrays in his paintings. The results are beautiful scenic paintings that illustrate his unique style and skill with color and composition. He recently completed a new mini-series of paintings of "Floral Designs". Curt and his wife Susan reside in Flora Vista, New Mexico.
