Playing With Pretend Money In Bar Harbor, Maine


Acrylic on canvas, 24 x 20″

A Painter or poet can find time to “spend it all” too. He must economize all year and vacation with dread buffers stuffed deep into his ears. It’s a tough fight with oneself, but in the end, well worth the irrational battle. Why anyone would read the biographies of spoiled children like Lord Byron or Shelly will always be a mystery to me. They could not have known happiness. Not with all that boredom! I’ll allow Whitman the last word:

Sometimes With Money I Love

Sometimes with money I love I fill myself with worry for fear of it,
But now I think there is no reason to be afraid, the payback is certain one way or another
(I loved a certain currency ardently and my love was never return’d,
Yet out of that I have painted these pictures).
by Waltron Whitman
