As you may (or may not) be aware, I’m writing a few articles this summer for my local paper. My latest one was just published yesterday—in the Sunday paper, on July 4th, and just inside on page A3—and it was about a little old lady who’s recently decided to be an artist.
The link will only work for a couple weeks, maybe a month, before it sinks into the pay-per-view archives, but until then you can check it out.
A little tidbit that’s not in the article: She’s painted a rendition of the famous “Christ knocking on heart’s door,” and won a ribbon with her painting at her town’s festival. She gave her most recent painting, a waterfall scene, to her doctor, who plans to hang it in his lobby.
