Einstein

Found in my home town is a man who I have a personal connection with. No, we are not both geniuses, and I would be lucky to have been his chauffeur or friend. We share the same birthday, which has always been a weird and misplaced sense of pride for me. And what a fantastic mural someone created. How they do that, paint big, while being close?

  1. I have a poster of Einstein in my classroom. Several years ago a student asked who he was and without thinking long about it I said, “My Dad” and pointed out the similarities: wild hair, facial foliage, and eccentricity. We now have to clarify which Dad I am talking about about in my classroom. Thanks for the great picture Mike.

  3. Having done murals, the way you know what you’re doing up close is to have it planned out before hand. For me, it’s much less improvisational than working on a canvas. Usually, I walk through all the steps in my mind before I even approach the wall.

  4. Fantastic, indeed, and I think I understand your misplaced pride. I share my birthday with legendary Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova, which I’ve always been very pleased about, not because I followed in her ballet-toed footsteps in any way, but because she had a cream meringue dessert named after her.
