When I graduated from The Art Institute of Boston in 1975 I went to the president of the school and asked; now that I have graduated what do I do now?
(A question that might be better asked when you begin your studies.)
He said - do whatever you are able and for the rest of your life build a body of work that you will be proud of.
I was looking for some more specific direction that day but the lack of specifics allowed me to follow my own path, make my own choices and create the paintings as I wished that you see here in this book today.
Copplestone LLC creates and develops learning, action and skill games for both children and adults. Beginning in 1980 these creative brain teasers were inspired by the artist and founder David Copplestone’s need for a stream of income that would allow for ample time and the economic freedom to paint. Inventing the games has been a very gratifying, creative and challenging experience brimming with its own unique rewards and conceptual demands.
I hope when you play these games you experience some of the joy that I have had while developing them. They are not easy in order that they be a good measures of your abilities, your effort and your willingness to learn, he says.
