Gustavo "Gus" Camacho has always loved art.  Even though prior to retirement, Gus had a full-time busy career, he pursued his passion for creating art.  As a resident of Merritt Manor, Gus sketched a beautiful landscape scene of Merritt Manor's backyard.  Each sketch takes almost 3 weeks to complete.  Gus studies the landscape background to plan measurements and dimensions.  Once Gus has configurations in mind, he begins sketching the landscape on paper.  When he is happy with those results, he transfers the sketch to canvas.  When Gus is not sketching or writing poetry, he is busy performing Mariachi, Tex-Mex and American music for everyone around him to enjoy!
