Rowland, my painting buddy, turned 85 today. We had a “light” lunch with the group. This man is always in top form, so involved in life. He is an inspiration to me. In a mere 20 years I could still be painting and enjoying myself. It means I have a lot of time to “evolve” my style. Rowland certainly has, from paintings I have seen of his from the late ’40s! We never know where our inspiration will come from, so we may as well be on the alert.
