Liza Grant Smith of Palm Beach Illustrated caught up with KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley for a Q&A, focused on the rocker’s new career as a painter. Asked what led him into painting, Stanley responded, “Divorce will jolt you in ways you may not expect. My best friend told me that I needed to paint. He seemed to feel I needed a release—and he was right. I went out and bought canvases and brushes and basically started on an emotional journey, a way to discover in myself things that were going on and put them on canvas. Kind of like stream-of-consciousness, but instead of words, using color and texture.” Stanley will be appearing at the Wentworth Gallery in Palm Beach Gardens on Friday (November 30) from 6-9 p.m. and at the Wentworth Gallery in Boca Raton on Saturday (December 1) from 6-9 p.m. Read more.
