I like painting things on magazine pages. I know it is not "archival" and I don't care, because it is simply for practice. It is kind of fun looking through the magazine to choose the headline...and I chose this page because "Richard Long" was my 8th grade art teacher. When "Mister Long" wasn't babysitting a bunch of dippy youngsters he painted wonderful paintings, many of them with dark subjects, like the JFK assassination. Hard to believe, I know.... in 8th grade I was kind of an incorrigible. Mister Long used to have to confiscate things from me because I liked to disrupt the class, but he never punished me very harshly. I think he liked young people and he had an inordinate amount of patience.
Clarification: The magazine article is about a different artist with the same name as my teacher. Do you share your name with another?
