He said residents often came to him with photos of old buildings and asked him to recreate it in a painting.
Mr Aschenbrenner said he was recently asked to paint an old mill that used to be in town and was keen to learn about it.
He does not claim to have a signature style to his paintings.
‘‘Most people can’t believe one artist did all of these paintings.
He enjoys recreating old masters and has a penchant for oil on canvas.
Mr Aschenbrenner said he was not usually interested in exhibiting his work but felt it was time.
He said he did not sell paintings to earn a living but enjoyed being an artist.
Coming from a building background, he used to paint until 5am and get up at 6am for work.
‘‘(During creative times) it was no good going to bed because I won’t sleep anyway,’’ he said.
The exhibition will be at Richie’s Art Gallery from 10am until 5pm, Saturday until Monday.
