A friend and reader of this nest John Kelly joined us at Cripple Cove for an early morning painting class a few weeks ago. John juggles a lot of responsibilities and joys: he runs a business, is raising a young family, an avid gardener and artist. He recently sent me some pics of his oil studies. his current interests are eggs near water and domestic commentary (my interpretation). I've always admired his drawing/painting skills and am pleased to see he continues look at the world with a brush in his hand.
