Check out this blog by my brother-in-law Colin Quashie. He was commissioned by the University of North Carolina to paint a 50' mural to honor black North Carolinians who have contributed to society. They had a mural done in the 1950's to honor prominent NC'ers, but the only black guy in it was toting a bale of cotton. Quashie's theme is the Greensboro Four at the Lunch counter. This time, the Four are the chefs and are doing the serving! The mural will be installed and unveiled at Chapel Hill in July.
When I retired as a college mathematics instructor, I couldn't wait to further explore the possibilities of being a full time artist. I started painting in watercolors in 2002 and I fell madly in love with it. Sometimes, I even paint in my sleep! I hope you enjoy looking at my art.
