Subject: My art used by the Wizard
I’ve been negligent about writing until now about the use of a detail from one of my paintings (shown below) in a couple of Monday Morning Memos. It’s fun to know Mr. Williams likes it enough to use it, but there is a little fact I’d like him to know. He’s written each time for the credit, “The kids flying over my head? I found them when I walked into a painting by Daniel R. Cooper, the brother of a guy who reads the wizard’s Monday Morning Memo.”
The actual story is that I’ve been a regular reader/fan of MMM since The Wizard came to Indianapolis many, many years ago to speak at the Indianapolis Ad Club. I’m the one who got my brother, Ron Cooper, to subscribe (along with others – mostly clients).
By the way, I’m having a one-artist exhibit in October titled “Portals”. I’ve gotten a kick out of reading Mr. Williams use of portals in several of his articles. I’d love to visit if I could ever get to Texas.
