George.....Living the Artist's Life
What artist hasn't dreamt of chucking convention and living where there are few distractions--so that they may paint sun up to sun down and concentrate soley on their art? That is just what my artist friend and "former" gallery owner George Broderick is doing. I caught up with him today at his house in Rainer. What a cool place! Holes in the walls and the smell of oil paint in the air. George is talking about having a get together at his house for all his artist friends. It is an hour drive from Portland. I hope he does that so you can all see his place first hand! Check the view from his deck..is that interesting or what? He has incorporated a ship into his newest painting. I can't post it publicly, because it isn't done yet. I try to get George interested in blogging..but he is too busy. He tells me that he peruses art books every day and that he never turns on the television. You really can't get more arty than that.
