The Mari Evans mural was ensigned by the wonderful person Shauta Marsh of Big Car. Miss Evans was actually the one who asked that I be the one to do the mural.
When I was young, I quit school and spent time in prison for robbery and a violation of the 1935 firearms act. It was there that I really learned about painting and poetry; I met an oil painter who taught me everything I knew and studied Mari Evans and other poets while in prison. She was, perhaps, my favorite... so I was honored to create her mural years later.
I was very thankful for my journey and reasoned that everyone does not go to the same school, to say. We all learn our interests in different ways.
Well, it is no secret that an artist actually draws and paints for visual satisfaction and entertainment, so the greatest satisfaction is that more eyes get to see my murals. And, of course, getting the opportunity to paint something larger than life.
I love having breakfast at Just Judy’s; the people are wonderful and the food is excellent! I always buy the same thing; a veggie omelet, hash potatoes, with toast and coffee.
I love roller skating 5 days a week, and I like all the local skating rinks, though The Fun Factory has the most space to have fun.
Well of natural course, I would take them to an art museum like the Eiteljorg Museum, and then I am going skating! They are welcome to come along, of course, but I am going... At 70, I am too old to quit!
