This week was special. We celebrated my dad - Jack's 77th birthday with a small family gathering. Now you must remember that with the Richeson's, even a small family gathering is usually 20 or more. This night was no different.
Hard to believe Jack started in the Art Materials business when he was only 16 years old. That's 61 years ago! The industry has changed in more ways then you can imagine in that time. Still I can't think of a single person in this industry with as much knowledge on Artist Materials as my dad.
If you are ever curious about what the industry looked like in the 1950's...you must get a copy of his book -"Confessions of a Brush Peddler". It is truly an amazing read!
