Letter from Sally Gilchrist
Art – January 2001 – Colorado Central Magazine
Dear Ed & Martha:
As a new subscriber, I was happy to see an article on a local artist [Marty Mitchell of Saguache in the December edition].
Especially one, like myself, who has chosen to retreat to the backwoods for whatever reason. I was interested in reading about Mitchell’s philosophy and feel similarly influenced by local landscape, although I am still a figurative painter. As Thoreau once said; “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,…., and to see if I could learn what it had to teach,” It sounds like Mitchell is doing just that. Bravo. Thank you for the inclusion of art, whatever the method.
