The Big, Nosy, Controversial Question

Okay, here is your invitation to the coolest art show, by the nicest artist I’ve ever met. It’s Friday, September 1st… I don’t care how you get here, just get here if you can…

Paul Richmond is the protegy of my favorite artist, Linda Regula. She’s been mentoring Paul since he was 3, and those early paintings weren’t the usual scribbles and stick people most 3 year olds draw, they were cartoon characters anyone could recognize. This show has sample of his work from age 4 through the present, a fascinating walk through his life as he grew as a person as well as an artist. He’s 26 now, handsome, charming and the joy of life just rolls off him in waves. If he weren’t gay, everyone would want their daughter to marry him. Shoot, gay or not everyone would want their daughter to marry him. He’s just that nice.

I stopped debating the “right” or “wrong” of homosexuality long ago… Judge not and all that. I don’t care what the “church” thinks about the subject, it’s a lifestyle I know nobody would deliberately choose because society is hard, mean and perfectly ruthless. It isn’t an easy life and this fact has been brilliantly illustrated through some of Paul’s paintings. Which brings about the age old question of why? It stinks that some of the nicest men I’ve ever met are not eligible as husbands to my daughters.

    Does sexuality really matter, at the end of the day dont you just decide if people are nice or not. If someone is good company, and we share a common interest in something, who gives a hoot……not moi.

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
