P.A.D. in Art Calendar Magazine



Carolyn Proeber, editor of Art Calendar magazine, has written an engaging and informative article for this months issue, on the Painting A Day movement. The article begins with the dramatic, and well deserved, success of Duane Keiser. It details the chronology of his involvement, and how his work has accelerated it's phenomenal growth.

The article continues as Boston artist, Jeff Hayes, provides his insight into the popularity of the PAD method. The views of Virginia artist Maggie Stiefvater are also included. I'm proud to say that I own paintings from both of these talented artists. The article contains images of paintings from Jeff and Maggie, as well as the work of artist Darren Maurer.

The article concludes with a concise outline, providing basics on how one can get started. I've been doing this for a while, and I have to say that I learned some things myself. If you find yourself at your local newstand, you should check it out.

I would also like to thank Carolyn for her generousity in choosing one of my paintings for the cover. It was a great honor, and I thank you.

I just got my copy of this magazine in the mail the other day and kept asking myself why those peaches looked so familiar!

Congrats!
