My cousin, Jay Cantrell, has been awarded the 2009 Gabriel Prize, one of the fanciest and highest honors an architect or architectural student can receive. He will be staying in Paris for three months this summer, all bills paid, and working with a French mentor to sketch and record his impressions of France. His mother just called to tell us . . . my ears are still ringing!
That’s him . . . on the first line.
We knew he could draw from the first time he stayed with us as a toddler and we gave him the crayons. He started doing a picture of my mother’s kitchen and the stove that looked just like . . . the kitchen and the stove. Eventually he decided to become the next Frank Lloyd Wright, and it looks like he’s getting there!
