This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.

"Harvest Is Great"

Some Kent State art students dropped by as I was painting on the last warm day of 2008. They were changing their majors from fine art painting to illustration. It is strange and wrong that there is this separation. The Renaissance painters were illustrators.
At this point the light is fading, I was getting cold and decided to pack up.
There is a painter in Boston who has a huge delivery truck that he parks all over the city to paint from. It is such a great idea. I'd like to try that some day. Like Steinbeck's, "Travels With Charlie", I'll drive across the country.
