Artist Rolls Along After Discarding Paint Brushes NEW YORK ears ago, artist Max Gimblett 'as shopping for some paint hen he eyed a roller. He bought it, tried it out, liked and laid aside his brushes. Since then, he's used only oilers and they keep getting igger and bigger. "I stayed with the standard ine-inch ones for imblett, 38, said in his Broad- ay studio recently. "Then I ent to 18 inches, and DOW stay relty much with the big ones." He lifted the biggest 37 hches wide, attached to a metal frame that reaches to his shoulders. When your painting tool is a 7-inch-wide roller, of course the cst of the gear has to match, lie trough is two-and-one-half et high and 10 feet wide, imblett pours gallons of into any one of its three com- partments, dips in the roller, and goes to work on a canvas seven feet wide and seven to 10 feet high, spread out over the easel, 10 feet wide and 16 feet high, on the floor. "You can get a very, very sensitive touch with this the cigar-smoking artist said. "I work in gestures of the fingers, the wist, the shoulder, even the total body." The results are finely edged swirls of color, predominantly red, that seem lo burst upon the viewer. 20 YEARS AGO Linn County Treasurer Frank F. Bates announced his candidacy for renomination and re-election paint on the Republican ticket.
