Last Painter Leaves Martyrs' Lane
1988-September 16, 1999
 
Preface

This memoir is a collection of short stories about the experiences of an artist living in a small adobe apartment on Martyrs' Lane in Taos, New Mexico. These stories are based on Paul McMillan’s personal experience and offer his unique reflections expressed through a sense of humor that contains hidden truths along with moral judgments about the high and the low of life during the ten year period he lived in Taos. Paul includes his own complicity in a mix of opinion, sarcasm, and justice unfolding in a Southwestern landscape of conflicting social mores often steeped in tradition. In this so-called “Land of Enchantment,” most, if not all of these influential inhabitants make usufruct of the opportunity to live unchecked in a less than self-critical life style, all the while determined to push their own agendas which are the driving forces in their lives, for better and for worse. As Paul left Taos, he realized he bore the burden of being the last artist to tell this story. This collection of thirty-seven short stories sets out to expose many of the underlying truths about being an artist living in Taos, New Mexico: "Last Painter Leaves Martyrs' Lane."
 
Paul McMillan is an award winning self-taught artist who enjoys telling a story whether it be in paintings, words or music. Best known for his paintings, Paul’s art career now spans over thirty years. His style ranges from classical to abstract, and occasionally includes original words and music. His oil paintings have luminous atmospheres and deep rich colors with finely blended details showing a little impasto where appropriate. Paul’s artwork is collected nationally and internationally.
 
Born in Kansas 1954, raised in Texas, lived in Taos, NM and Ithaca, NY, Pittsburgh, PA. Paul now lives and works in Burlington ,VT.
