Letter: Evansen is deserving of honor
To the editor,
We were happy to view the paintings and read your article about Andy Evansen on the front page of the Jan. 17 issue of the Star Gazette. He deserves to be a member of the Plein Air Painters of America.
We came to know Andy at least 10 years ago when we saw some of this work. We gave him a snapshot of our son Michael when he was 4 years old following his father Bernard down a field road between two corn fields. Andy painted a 27-inch by 35-inch watercolor from that snap shot. The corn gradually goes off into the distance, and the sky breaks out like it does after a summer rain. Bernard and Michael look exactly as they were "only yesterday." It is perfect.
Thanks, Andy, and congratulations!
Bernard and Mary Lou Bauer
