Observations & Impressions: An Artist’s Sketchbook is a privately printed 150-page book filled with nearly 200 drawings and paintings created between 1942 and 2017 by Everett Raymond Kinstler. You can see a preview here. Barnes & Noble and Amazon will begin carrying the book in April. Kinstler was also recently recognized as the only artist to have eight US Presidents sit for a portrait. “The art of the conversation is as much a part of his toolkit as his well-worn paints and brushes,” notes journalist Anne Quito in “The Art of Conversation, Explained by the Only Artist to Get Eight US Presidents to Sit Still,” an article just posted on the news website Quartz.
