Elementary my Dear Picasso


"So Sew" - 24" x 24" - oil

Available at Glave Kocen Gallery

A few weeks ago I mentioned my trip to Bettie Weaver Elementary School in Chesterfield , VA. I was so impressed by not only the school and staff but the students. At that age I was more focused on kickball and Saturday morning cartoons. These kids had already studied Picasso, Rothko and Matisse! This is when the cranky old man in me wants to yell "these pesky kids have it all!" Then the sensible voice in me whispers "that's how it should be.

This brings me to the matter at hand. A few weeks ago fellow artist, Steve Hedberg, asked if I would be willing to donate a couple of pieces for an auction to help raise money for the Patrick Henry School of Science & Arts. I of course said yes and proceeded to pull pieces for the auction. Not only is this a good cause to help the arts but you can get a Steven Walker painting out of it too. The auction will run from Nov. 18th to Dec. 9th, 2009. To view the work click the link below

Dang....do you always wear a halo or only on special occasions. What a magnanimous gesture but after following your blog for almost a year, I know it's just what you do from your heart. (hugs)

Thank you Sheila and to answer your question...I only wear my halo when I can't find my Steelers cap. Honestly, It's more about making up for all of the selfish things I've done in the past.

The remarkable design qualities in your paintings, along with your impeccable technique, always blow me away. And to know that you're genuinely nice guy, too; Wow. Thanks for being both an inspiration and a hard act to follow.
