More from Don's sketchpad ...

... probably drawn while vacationing in Maine  ...

from Don Norris

Another sketch-book drawing, done thirty or forty year ago, during the period of life in which I was
to become a famous artist. Well, it didn't happen, but I still have all those sketches, the
drawings,, the watercolors and oil paintings. Now the question is, at age 85, what do I do with all that
beautiful artwork?

I mean, the kids' homes have their fill of Grandfathers' works. There is little market for amateur
stuff, but we try.

It was a good life, and I'm glad I created art -- I reckon these  paintings and drawings will hang
around, and maybe some day, someone rich dude will say, "Hey look at this beautiful painting by some guy
named Norris  ..."
