Paint by Numbers

I wanted to paint a picture some day that people would stand before and forget that it was made of paint. I wanted it to creep into them like a bar of music and mushroom there like a soft bullet. –O. Henry, The Complete Works of O. Henry

  1. I didn’t know O. Henry had an artistic license as well as a poetic license. Although I went to Wiki to see if any art works were mentioned, I didn’t find any there. I did find that he lead quite an interesting life.

    • He is an interesting guy. I had forgotten about him until I saw that quote. My reaction: Oh Henry. . . said that. . .

  2. Feeling old today (but good). The CO of VP-10 the Red Lancers joined the Navy a year before I retired from VP-10.
