I’ve shared previously that one of my other activities has been serving on the Board of Directors for The Eden Alternative, a culture change organization involved in improving the lives of all Elders.  Dr. Bill Thomas, the founder with his wife, Jude, have created a worldwide movement dedicated to changing the way society views aging.  […]

Last week, about 90 of our staff members volunteered a couple hours each, to clean up all of the roads within our small community of Columbus, NY. This is no small feat to clean up all 45 miles of road, but many hands made the work a success. We’ve been doing this annual clean up […]

The Golden Acrylics are all protected for at least 5 freeze thaw cycles, but eventually the regular thawing and freezing will coagulate the acrylic making it into a […]

As I speak to more artists working with the Williamsburg Handmade Oil Colors it is clear that many had been so connected to Carl and if not Carl, to Beverly,  his sister, but if not a personal connection, they are absolutely connected to Carl’s ideals of making a paint for painters.  Their greatest concern is […]

I think back to the day my folks, my wife and I sat at the attorney’s office in Norwich, NY to sign the incorporation papers to begin Golden Artist Colors.  My folks put in $2,500 and I had to borrow from them my $2,500 for my part of the investment. But that was just the […]

Well over three years ago, I shared a conversation with Jackie Battenfield, a wonderful artist and long time friend, about her desire to write a book to share her experiences and expertise in how to build a career as an artist.  Jackie had been coaching artists for over 15 years at the very well respected […]

I am delighted that we are now in the construction phase of the Foundation Residency Building.  The demolition phases of cleaning all the junk out of the barn, pulling out rotted beams and flooring, dismantling parts of the hand laid foundation and stripping off the siding were completed this previous fall.  The new footers, straightening […]
