Acclaimed artist Joseph O’Sickey spent seven of his more than nine decades painting and teaching. In JOSEPH O’SICKEY: THE ART OF LIFE, we visit the artist’s Ohio home and garden that serve as the inspiration for many of his paintings. We learn about the love affair that he had with his belated wife, Algesa. It’s a touching story of the beauty and the brush.
