Fall 2005 Issue (the online version only has a tiny version of it, but John P. Cobb’s painting Mary (the Mother of Jesus) as a Child, Her Grandfather Joaquim Guiding (1998. Egg tempera on Masonite board. 34.5 x 34.5 inches) was on the front page!

I’m very excited to see this, partly because I love John’s work, but also because he is such a nice guy (he was very encouraging to me in my attempt to get back into painting again when I went to the arts retreat last year at Laity Lodge)

(also see Constructing the Illusion of Depth — Four of Austin’s master painters reveal the secrets of their craft to see some more work by John Cobb)

Thanks go to David Taylor for letting me know about John getting this exposure.
