The following is biography I pulled off the internet: Born in Maine in 1935. Morton has painted every day for nearly forty years. As a young man, he gravitated to California and immersed himself in an art movement now known as the "San Francisco School" made famous by artists Wayne Thiebaud and Richard Diebenkorn (under whom Morton studied at the prestigious San Francisco Art Institute). The movement was characterized by colorful, broad brushed, semi-abstract studies of everyday scenes, using a flattened perspective. Morton's biography and list of credentials reads like a novel.
