Hulan  decided to go to Seattle Pacific University in the fall of 1957. After completing his Physics degree in June of 1965, he taught Jr. High Science for 3 years. During that time he joined Gallery North, and completed about 10 paintings selling 6 of them at his first show. This and other significant things encouraged him to change careers in 1968.
Those influencing him in the early years were Andrew Wyeth, Harold Lyon, Fred Oldfield and others. It was Fred Oldfield who encouraged him to go to the Western Art Auctions. It was at the First National Western Art Show  & Auction in Ellensburg where he received his first award for his first cowboy painting. Since then he has become an accomplished professional artist, and sells his paintings all over the U.S.
Hulan describes his work as realistic impressionism, not truly historical to detail but bearing the spiritual idea of the place. His oils are done on hard board (Masonite type), which is an excellent surface and has been age tested to survive 600 or more years.
For the future, his interests are leaning towards the Plein Air (painting on site) and more impressionism. It will be interesting to watch and see what he will paint next.
