'OTTO ' painted in my studio 2003
oil on canvas
Curtis Otto was a terrific artist and and strong 'personality'. When you ran into him, he would instantly 'talk art'. Never the weather, the state of his health, or the price of gas. His entire home was a studio and show space. Come to think of it, he often utilized his front yard in the same manner.
If he saw you (wether he knew you or not) walking down the sidewalk, he would likely ask for your opinion about the painting he was working on. He loved hearing the opinions of others
and often tried their ideas. I always enjoyed these qualities in him.
He will be missed by many.
