This faint confluence of the tangible and the spiritual is where art comes from.” —Richard Schmid, excerpt from Alla Prima

Lake Minnetonka Magazine September 2022

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C., and one of my sons. Talk about a full menu of things to see and do!

(The Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park is also a favorite of mine.)
