When I was 17 the first painting I sold was to Mrs. David Rockefeller at my first art show. This was in New York City at the Frisch Gallery.

You see, the problem was that every year Jesus made Mom into his Christmas slave. Let me explain. My childhood Christmastime question was: “Mom, who’s going to be in our house for Christmas?” The answer never varied. “The guests God brought to us this year my dear.” The guests were … [Read more...]
