I remember driving through the Spanish countryside and commented on all the abandoned stucco houses and farms, probably hundreds of years old and they should be fixed up. “A fresh coat of paint and it’s all good”, my friend Lucas replied. I love to make something new out of something old and this old adage is still true. Meeting other strangers, who become friends while painting is one of my favorite parts of being an artist. Thanks for the opportunity Thom, Alison, and Drei. When I had finished painting, I had accidentally splashed a little paint on their new fence and Thom graciously stated, “It’s your Navajo moment.” Meaning, Tribal rugs from southwest tribes always hide imperfection in them since they believe Mother Earth never made anything perfect. A welcomed compliment indeed.
