n a recent art-buying trip to several artist studios, our three-year-old daughter Isabella said something that astounded both of us as we were discussing various things she might want for a birthday gift. “I want a rhino,” she kept insisting. “A rhino?” we asked. “YES, a rhino!”


After a while, we realized that Isabella had been referring to a Vladimir Kush fine art print all along, which she had seen while visiting the artist’s studio during our trip. The print was titled “Trojan Horse” and it did, in fact, feature a rhino.


This story was a special reminder of how impacting the fine art experience can be—no matter who (or how old) you are. In this fall issue of Off the Easel, we feature artists that we hope will offer a similar, lasting impact on our readers. From our cover story that follows Christopher M. through the Napa Valley and the debut of his new winemaker series of paintings, to the surrealistic paintings of Vladimir Kush, to the fused- glass autumn trees by artist Anne Nye, this season signifies one of the best times of the year to experience art!
