WHAT ARE YOU READING THESE DAYS?

Most recently I’ve reread “Edward Hopper Watercolors.”  I’m slowly reading though the third Harry Potter before the movie comes out. I’m also halfway through “Reign of the Stavka” — kind of a mystery action intrigue conspiracy novel. I usually make it through several magazines each month. Smithsonian, Art News, Southwest Art, Tikkun, Wilson Quarterly, Modern Painters (also a quarterly) and I’ll nose through my wife’s Real Simple.

WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PAINT OR SCULPT YOUR PORTRAIT?

Hard one. I liked the one Lee Udall Bennion did years ago. (My former wife has it) As for one now, I’d give Bruce Smith, Camille Korry or Ed Oberbeck free reign with my face.  Maybe even Alex Bigney.

WHAT IS HANGING ABOVE YOUR MANTEL?

Our home has no mantel, but above the entry door table hangs Rembrandt’s, “Christ Raising Lazarus”, a posthumous restrike from the millennium edition. I have a few of my kid’s drawings and some friends’ work hanging in my studio.
