He retired as Dean of the College of Fine Arts at Jacksonville University among other scholarly appointments. Netter was experiencing inner peace in the tranquil surroundings of his farmhouse in the Loire Valley, France when he shifted focus to paint landscapes in a minimalist style in order to capture the special light of the region and to make a meaningful offer of serenity.
