7.8.16 Namaste

“Every now and then one paints a picture that seems to have opened a door and serves as a stepping stone to other things.” ― Pablo Picasso Even though it was more than a year ago when my wife and I visited Southeast Alaska, the journey has stayed with me, I find myself reflecting back on the memories frequently. I find experiences a better investment than things, more and more these days. If you’ve read my vow for this year, you know I am trying to “not purchase anything I don’t truly need” However, when I met a gifted painter with the rare talent for capturing an experience and bringing it to life, I began to think about one possession I might just want after all. Artist Dottie Leatherwood Dottie Leatherwood was working in her studio the day I visited Paul Hastings to talk about a story I wanted to write on The Dilworth Artisan Station. Dottie is a rising star in the art world and will have one of her works in the American Impressionist Society 17th Annual National Juried Exhibition, so I was happy to meet her. As I looked around her studio, I was impressed with her work. It was like I could step into any one of her paintings and feel right at home.
