There are few who reach their full potential in this life, my brother is a rare gem who has found his true calling! Im very proud of your acomplishments Phil and am privileged to have some of your early paintings! Keep on painting and sharing your views!!!!
I'm another lucky owner of a painting by King Lear. To be a full-time artist, a capitalist entrepreneur if you will, is a risky life choice, but Lear has everything he needs to succeed handsomely. It's no surprise that the Indy would think he merits a feature article and a gorgeous cover to boot. This artist's work is above and beyond anything else you'll see on gallery walls. So buy while he's still affordable.
Phil Lear is an artist that will be talked about and collected for ever. He is a rare and amazing talent. I am honored to own one of his pieces and I wish I could afford to have many many more of them.
Nicely written spotlight on a clearly talented, up and coming artist.
Thanks. I'll add that to my list.
You can always join our Iyengar class at The Studio in Manitou Springs on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 530 :) . It's at 65 Beckers Lane.
Very well written! I can feel the derby love in every statement.
Thanks for writing this article on us!! Hope to see you and everyone else attend our next bout! Deuces to your mom!
not sure where you got the 'DJ' in 'DJ Tall City', since not only am I not a character on Full House, I also will not be a 'DJ' tomorrow. You've been watching so much TV you are hearing voices.
Fascinating -- great article!
An amazing group!
It was a great show, they swapped stories and well cussed like "sailors". They did a meet and greet after the show, which was awesome. Got to get up close and personal with them. Is and will always be one of my favorite shows.
I knew a Charles Rockey, artist, that lived in Chicago, when I was a kid. And he was from Colorado. Could this possibly be the same guy? Very hard to tell by the pictures as I was about 16 and he maybe 28. That would make him about 82 now. Could this be? He was an excellent, unrecognised artist at the time. I was intrigued by his picture about alcoholism.......
a person trying to exit the bottle. If it is our "Rockey" I'd love to hear from him. Please pass on my email address, or let me know how I can get in touch with him. Thanks, Gloria Russell
I ALWAYS see lightbulbs flashing above Don Goede's head. :-) This will be an amazing, superfun event. I can't wait!
Best bet is to periodically check in with Josh at Lofty's. You could swing in for coffee or just keep on eye on their Facebook page. Of course if we hear anything, we'll make some noise about it, too.
Sounds really interesting. How will we know if/when the comic will be published? I'd love to get a chance to "read" it.
Thank you so much for sharing my story!!
I've known Tom and Paul for a long time also, Edie's interviewing skills speak volumes of her passion for people and her ability to share her observations. Her story takes on a personal quality, for those who are just meeting Tom they can carry away an image of the man as he is; complex, multifaceted and yet simply rural at the root. Thank you for your portrait of a very special person, you've shared him in a manner you can stretch your arms around.
I have know Tom and Paul for many years and I was quite amazed at your insight into this complex and talented man called SPIEL. Your insight and use of words to describe this "gentle man" made me feel like I was sitting in the same room observing him and his works. He is quite an amazing soul and you captured him through your interview and words BEAUTIFULLY.........Loraine
