Pablo Picasso said: “It takes a long time to become young.”
It’s surprisingly difficult to see with the eyes of a child, but it’s a very good way to paint.
For the maturing artist, there’s always more to UNLEARN.
A sense of wonder is good for kids of all ages.

It’s satisfying to put the brush down after a long day of painting and know I have given it my all.
But the story isn’t over when I’ve signed my name to the painting.
It turns out art has an amazing ability to connect us, to ourselves and each other.
For me, connecting with nice people who share a love for art and Vermont is icing on the cake.
I’m convinced that each work of art finds its rightful home. Serendipity or fate, somehow the universe conspires and the stars align to bring us together. The internet helps too, I suppose.
Maybe the art finds a home, or a home finds the art, but it always seems like it was meant to be.
In the photo below, my new friend Collen Doyle picks up his new painting “Bridgewater Vermont” at the studio.
Collen bid and won the Day in Vermont auction a few weeks ago.
Collen grew up in the Bridgewater area and now hosts the Woolen Mill Comedy Club there.
Thanks Collen, for another happy ending!
