He bought it, tried it out, liked it, and laid aside his brushes. j Since then, he’s used only rollers — and they keep getting bigger and bigger. “I stayed with the standard nine-inch ones for awhile,” i Gimblett, 38, said in his Broad (way studio recently. “Then I went to 18 inches, and now stay pretty much with the big ones.” He lifted the biggest — 37 inches wide, attached to a metal frame that reaches to his shoulders. When your painting tool is a 37-inch-wide roller, of course the: rest of the gear has to match. The trough is two-and one-half feet high and IO feet wide. (Gimblett pours gallons of paint into any one of its three compartments, dips in the roller, and goes to work on a canvas seven feet wide and seven to IO feet high, spread out over the easel, IO feet wide and 16 feet high, on the floor. “You can get a very, very sensitive touch with this thing,” the cigar-smoking artist said. “I work in gestures — of the fingers, the wrist, the shoulder, 'even the total body.” The results are finely edged swirls of color, predominantly red, that seem to burst upon the viewer. 26 YEARS AGO - Linn County Treasurer Frank F. Bates announced his candidacy for renomination and re-election on the Republican ticket. willy s floral J design 3561 KIRST AYE. S.K.-DELIVERY SERVICE • 313 2175 New Hour*!
