This is about a family and it’s art. It’s about stories related to that art. It’s about encouraging other whwo might not have paoitngs or ever thought of buyin one, to connect to art though story.
Mike Rubbo, encouraged by the Manly Art Gallery, decided to put this blog together to promote the idea of Family Art Stories. the concept will be launched, April 12th, 2008 2pm. at the Manly Art gallery.
Mike is mainly a film maker though he paints sometimes. He is married to Katya Korolkevich Rubbo, also a painter and teacher. They have a daughter, Ellen, 15. Mike learned to love blogging in 2007 by doing a blog for his friend, Olive Riley. At 108, Olive is the oldest blogger in the world. www,allaboutolive.com.au
Telling Olive’s story through the blog, and seeing the wondneful reaction from around the world, convinces Mike again that story, if not everything, is almost everything.
