His watercolor painting features the Marblehead lighthouse. He grew up across the Sandusky Bay from the lighthouse and chose the structure because of its meaning to him.

A salesman at Steve Austin’s Auto Group, he and his wife, Glenna, have three daughters and six grandchildren.

Active in his church’s youth ministry, he and his wife recently accompanied a group of youths to Israel.

He considers the ministry a hobby.

Aside from a high school art class, Woods has no artistic background, but he enjoyed the process.

“It was fun seeing my thoughts up here before me on canvass,” he said, and it is something he just might continue doing.

“I was thinking I would mind doing a little more of this.”
