Local Color

This film is based on the true story of a summer in the 1970’s when a young boy got the chance to learn how to paint from a master.  18 year old John has been painting on his own for years, but wonders if he is truly good enough to be a real painter. When his local framer gives world that a well known artist named Nikoli lives nearby, John petitions him to be his assistant. During that following summer, John learns many things that he never expected, and got the opportunity to grow not only as a man, but as an artist.
