Hi. Last week I was on fire painting subjects in watercolor that brought back great memories for me. A trip to Cozumel. An old barn outside of Columbus, Ohio, where we used to live. A beautiful beach in North Carolina where I spent many hours and days with my dearest friends. I will always cherish these paintings and the memories that remind me of how grateful I am for my life.
Last week, during the weekly broadcast of the Tabernacle Choir (number 4,303, amazingly--the nation's longest running broadcast) Dr. Lloyd D. Newell presented an essay on "The Influence of Art." I include it here. I don't believe anything could be better stated.
