My friend and neighbor Rick White showing off some photographs he took. Note the abstract of a boat slip near San Francisco in the pretty town of Sausalito. Rick is trying to be an artist at the age of 78 after his retirement (some years ago) as a travel photographer for the likes of TWA, and as an art director at advertising agencies in Chicago. He recently was invited to have his work displayed in a Colorado gallery (hot stuff), and on hearing immediately set off by train there with photographs in tow. Here, prior to his abstract period of recent, one gallery that turned him down said he wasn't an artist. Well, maybe he is getting there.
