Video Thursday - Paul Goodnight
I am so excited to show you these videos. This artist...Paul Goodnight, was a personal friend of my boys when we lived at the Piano Factory in Boston.
Paul Goodnight would meet my children, Winston and Isaac in the courtyard. My son Winston was like Thomas Edison...in a lot of ways...but he used to be notorious for asking a lot of questions. One of the simple answers to Winston's questions was Scubba Dust....How does or how do you ...it was all attributed to Scubba Dust. He was so much fun for my children and provided a lot of laughs for all of us.
The children and I got to go see his studio. He was painting a large canvas at the time...and working from a small sketch that he made..
It was a privilege for my children to have lived there...and it really did change their lives and impact them.
Isaac draws very good, and who knows maybe it was inspired by visiting Paul Goodnight and other artist at the Piano Factory community. I will post more about the Piano Factory in my next post. I know for me I started seeing that artist were just human beings that keep creating. I just need to keep creating.
