Mom read out loud to son.  Mar 29, 2008
I highly recommend this book. It does a superb job of describing
the life of an "Early American Itinerant Artist" who travels the country painting portraits, walls and objects for a living. It even throws in a beautiful "enduring" love of very young man as he earns his way to be able to marry.
The Journeyman  Dec 13, 2006
Jared Ausitn was born on a cold winters night. When his his mother died to keep him warm, his father got very angry. Until the day when his father found a second wife Jared went to live with a nice family and was cared for by Mama Thaxter. One day when Jared was outside enjoying Gods creation he heard his father yelling from the house. When he got there to his amazment a stranger was there. This stranger he found would be his master and Jared his apprentice. Thru the five years Jared was with Mr. Toppan his master, he learned alot about Gods love and world and how to turn a drabbey wall into a thing of beauty. When Jared is done with his apprenticeship he travels back to his home town, but not to see his family not until he can face his father. So instead he heads to a nearby villige and paints walls for the people there. After a long hard winter never seen, Jared soon learns that he is not welcome in the villige. But he stays and wins favor with many. After no harvest will they blame it on Jared or just ignore it? You will have to read the book to find out!
Could such a scrawny boy be good for anything?  Apr 18, 2000
A tiny cry rends the air as Jared Austin makes his first appearance. It is one of New Hampshire's coldest winters, and a young mother loses her life trying to keep her baby warm.

Jared spends his first years, until his father's second marriage, being raised by kindly neighbors. Mother Thaxter works hard to put meat on his bones, but Jared is made to be scrawny.

As he moves back home at six, Jared learns to regard his bitter father with fear and trembling. He often comes under Eban's anger by forgetting his duties, lost in the beauty surrounding the Austin farm. Jared's passion is for beauty, wherever it may be found, but to Eben, beauty is little but a waste of time.

Sitting under a tree one day, talking with pretty Jennet Thaxter and making a stencil out of a leaf, Jared hears his father's angry call. Sure of a beating, Jared is surprised by a visitor who has saved him from that immediate fate. But Jared finds that this is not just any visitor, Mr. Toppan in a journeyman painter. A man who spends his whole life just traveling the country making beauty.

Young Jared Austin is apprenticed to Mr. Toppan, and in one day, his life is transformed. Now, the learning and creation of beauty is encouraged. With his new master, Jared journeys many miles, learning how to make beauty on grey walls, dreaming of Jennet, and planning his return. Jared knows he cannot return until he is worthy of her; until he can face his father.
