Do you like my Easter bonnet?


"There is a state of mind called Brenda's Nut Farm. I go there everyday. You do too. I've seen you there. You might have thought you were in the tomb of the unknown soldier, or in Walmart.............
The farm is populated.....a family of little children who may have names light Naughty Betty, or Jimmy Cookie....and more. The children are each me, and I am all of them.....working through them......I think....or vice-versa".
And so starts the site of Donald Roller Wilson, who is one of the most technically talented and imaginative painters existing in the world today. If I had an extra twenty grand or so, one of his magical paintings would be hanging in my home today. There is no way to pass a Roller painting and not stop and smile. You recognize yourself......dont' say you don't! Back to 
the nut farm........

So many artists copy his work, I think whole towns in China are supported by this activity! Americans are also influenced by his characters and his style, and a one or two artists who are painting "in the school of Roller" are quite talented, but a REAL ROLLER is a thing of beauty. If I were a rich man.........
