Burton Silverman, reacting with characteristic acerbic wit to a comment from the peanut gallery during a demonstration he did today at the Main Line Art Center. This guy is amazing: intellectual and informed, paints like a god, gets himself all over the country, speaks several languages (and did, during out polyglot workshop) and seemed to have more stamina than any of his students (we were all pretty limp at the end of the three days) several of whom are half his age. Which is 80. When he mentioned this some wag in the back muttered "Wow, well in that case, speed the day to 80!"
