When I painted a sky series during the summer—several posts starting with Attention-Getting, 7/26/15, and ending with A Series! Seriously!, 8/9/15—he took note and periodically pointed out interesting skies as possibilities for painting. Futh is one heck of a guy.
However, he's also got a sense of humor and isn't above making a snarky comment or two. When my son Jay and I drove up to Maine in early August to visit him and Muth at the Norway Center where Muth was living, Futh turned to me at one point, looked skyward, and said, "Dotty, there's a sky you could paint … "
And so I have.
