Biography


………………………………
 

……………………………….
 
Farmland, beaches, swamps and creeks
Cows and corn and cotton

He dreams
Who paints the sky?
He leaves
but not far enough
He dreams
Who cares?
He does.
He paints the sky, 
Lucky little farm boy.

The bodies Griswold paints are beautiful not only for how they look, but because of what they can do; and what they do is an expression of admirable qualities, namely dedication to athletic perfection. The subjects are appreciated as full persons, not diminished but honored by their nudity. Griswold’s subjects are of a moment and an era; if they weren’t frozen in paint, in another second they would have stuck the landing or landed a punch, and then went on with their 21st century lives.
