‘it’s like jazz on paper’ — a homeless artist, rescued, then discovered
Amy Alkon tells how she met Gary Musselman, an artist who happens to be homeless (I don’t like where “homeless artist” places the emphasis). She met Gary in a coffee shop, after she overheard some button-down snotbag offering a measley $10 each for his art.

Now I’m no aficionado, but I know what I like, and what I’d be willing to pay for a piece that pleases me.
His stuff is worth more than 10 bucks. And here’s what’s really cool.
Since Amy posted her blog, a legion of strangers has assembled to help Gary’s art get the exposure it deserves. Bravo, to Amy and her benevolent readers.
I’m terrible about getting everything copied that I need for a blog post. So I’ll come back after while to update this post, with the address for Gary’s new Web site, as well as his e-mail address. In case you’re curious, here’s the link to Amy’s post: Advice Goddess Blog
