   A spirit more substantial than life has remaining us.

   Graeme Stevenson was a exceptional man or woman. He experienced huge resourceful energies and the resolve to put his thoughts about artwork and the globe into action. We achieved him when he arrived at our studios one August day with his assistant, Sophia Stacey, together with baggage of filming and lights gear. We were being quickly amazed with his kindness and honest curiosity in our work and our life as artists. Each Graeme and Sophia exuded real enthusiasm and friendliness.

   We quickly hit it off. Kindred spirits. They created the job interview and filming approach entertaining and comprehensive of laughter. This was a entirely distinct variety of job interview practical experience. Special. Additional like hanging out with one’s shut buddies. In advance of we realized it, they were completed, packed up and all set to go. They ended up drained from traveling from Australia and throughout The usa, interviewing artists together the way. It has not frequently took place in our lives that we have achieved anyone like Graeme. Immediate rely on. He was that form of man or woman. And, he was an completed and properly-recognized easel painter on top rated of it all!

   We questioned him why he was burning up so substantially power and probable painting time to film and make his Color in Your Existence Tv set collection. He mentioned that he was helped together in his vocation by a person early on, and when he asked that particular person how he could at any time repay him, he was explained to to “just help other artists like yourself”. So he started to spend it ahead and we and hundreds of other artists who acquired to participate in the application and to know him a very little, are the beneficiaries of that generosity of spirit. The environment demands much more folks like Graeme Stevenson. He is skipped.

   We interviewed Graeme about his personalized artwork two months ago. You can see that job interview and some of his paintings here.

   As it states on the Color in Your Everyday living website, Graeme’s vision was “to create a library of the minds of artists, preserving a digital record of creative spirit, tradition, and procedures for foreseeable future generations.”
