Painting with Lynn was probably the coolest thing that has happened all year so far. It was real interesting to hear what he had to say to us about our paintings and the world of art, or at least the one he's been around. It was real neat to see his family involved in what he was doing and helping him with the "dirty work" so that he would have more time to paint. Making canvases and calls and so forth. And I'm not talking about the canvases that you can buy at an art store. these things were so well made that it probably took all day to make a 16 x 24. really precise craftmenship. When Jane and I showed up to his house, his wife jennnifer made a delicious breakfast for us and it was just a circle of warmth. but we were stting at a square table. He had two beautiful bird dogs that would just eat rocks and stared you in the eyes until you played with them. But it was amazing to see him work and what it takes to get the kinds of images he makes.
