A Long Letter – Jim Brown

“A apologize for the length of this letter, I did not have time to write a short one” – Blaise Pascal

 

You might think it would be easy to write a post introducing you to my dearest friend, Jim Brown. – You would be wrong.

Where would I start? With the weekend I met him on his first trip to Kansas City to do the Brookside Art Fair? Where that same weekend we invited him to a party at our house, he showed up with a box of chicken wings and didn’t leave for a week? Or maybe caravanning across the country together, with beautiful picnics and freezing cold camping spots? How that one artist friend described us as “cosmic twins” that had been reunited? About his distinct giggle that is the signal that he has had too much to drink? Or about his generosity of spirit (AND ADVICE whether required or not)? About how he lives so far away but is with us for up to six weeks at a time in the summer? I just don’t know…

 

Mixed Media on plaster

 

But, maybe it is enough to tell you he is the dearest friend I have ever had. How we love and argue just like siblings. And, I miss him terribly in the winter when we are apart. So instead of trying to tell you about Jim, I’ll show you some of his work instead, so you can see for yourself. We share the same appreciation for nature, for solitude, for blends of traditional and non-traditional methods.

I love Jim Brown and I think you will too! Visit his website and fall in love with his artwork. Need one for Christmas? Let us know – they are stored in Kansas City so I might be able to help you out!
