OGDEN -- Bob Betley still has many interests, but what gets him talking these days is his artwork.
Betley was always an artist, but after a career as a motorcycle police officer in Ogden, he turned his attenttion to golf.
For the next 30 years, Betley earned a living on the different golf tours around the world, gaining his top wins on the Senir PGA Tour.
Now he's returned to art, working out of his Bear Lake residence.
An exhibit of Betley's artwork opens on Friday at Ogden Blue, 175 25th St. An opening social is set for 6 p.m. on Friday. The show continues through July 30.
But mostly, Betley hopes to see more than a few familiar faces in Ogden.
Betley used to teach art and do portraiture, but the golf career didn't leave a lot of time for painting. He did do some commission work of golfers during that time.
These days, Betley mostly paints wildlife, including the deer and moose that visit his home near Bear Lake.
Betley also spends time working with a variety of clients, helping them discorver art.
"It's more fun now than it is a job, but it's nice to get back into doing some painting," Betley said.
Betley plans to host his annual fundraiser golfer tournament in September that features comedian Rich Little, and other friends he has made during his varied careers.
