I didn't mention this when it happened because I
was waiting to see if I could get some shots that of
the event that were taken by one of the professors.
Back at the beginning of November I was invited
speak to the painting classes at Harding University
where I graduated in '74. I used a PowerPoint and
brought three of my paintings. I was honored to be
able to go back and speak at the Art Department I
graduated from. I took 1833, Last Stand, and The
Tending Door as representative pieces.

Journey to Chadds Ford!
(Two summers ago)
My wife and I were in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania this summer.
We were driving down Route 1 and I saw road and remembered!
We drove up on Ring Road and found the Kuener's.
Today we spent the day doing the Brandywine Museum
bottom to top. Tremendous! At 10:00 am we went on the
tour of Andrew Wyeth's studio. All of this was perhaps
the best spent time and money an artist could invest.
I was doing photography back at the Kuerner farm and
all of a sudden a truck drove up and a man who got out
asked me what I was doing there. Come to find out it
was Karl J. Kuerner, the grandson of Karl Kuerner of
Wyeth fame. When he found out that I was an artist he
invited me up to his house. We spent two hours talking
about art and sharing our ideas on painting. Fantastic!

From our trip last year to the
for an Andrew Wyeth Show!
Last fall, Sharon and I drove to Rockland, Maine for the end of
a special Wyeth show. This show had some rarely seen Wyeth
work on exhibit including a very large watercolor that was the
study for his very last painting and an incredible watercolor
study of Far from Needham. A great show! We also drove
out to the Olson house and walked down to the master's
gravesite. He was buried in the middle of a snow storm
in January of 2009.
