HyperAllergic: Reposting of an interview

Okay, I am involved with so much work these days I can’t see straight to blog.  I still read at 5am before Mitchell wakes.  I love HyperAllergic.  That, Ted Talks and Rodale’s are the emails connected with blogs which most often get read!   HyperAllergic introduces me to many interesting painters:

Beer with a Painter: Pat de Groot

I met Pat de Groot in the large, enchanting house she has lived in since the 1960s, on Commercial Street in Provincetown, Massachusetts. You enter through a front garden overgrown with kale, statues of the Buddha, and a memorial to her first dog, one of the loves of her life. Her living room is filled with records and conga drums, her painting studio with kayaks hanging from the ceiling, the walls leading upstairs, with art by friends and her late husband, the painter Nanno de Groot.
