Here’s to Grandma Moses. Grandma Moses lived the life of a farmer’s wife until complaint of arthritis at the age of 76 was persuaded to take up painting. She painted from the age of 76 till her death at 101. Her work was embraced by the American public and her paintings hang in many famous galleries. Or in the words of Steve Jobs…

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.

Here’s to Grandma Moses, who showed us how to live young.

When Moses complained that arthritis made it hard for her to hold a needle, her sister Celestia suggested she paint instead. In this casual manner, the career of Grandma Moses began. Anna Mary Robertson (“Grandma”) Moses at Galerie St. Etienne
