On this day:

"You can't look at one of his paintings without seeing that smile, without seeing that gentle man"

A 112 year-old Alabama man turns early memories into art:

(AP) The works by a man [named Frank Calloway] who has lived about half his life in state mental health centers will be part of an exhibit this fall at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. His caretakers have suspended sales of his artwork until after the show after finding out some of his drawings could sell for thousands of dollars.

Here's a video of Mr. Calloway at work, sharing a simple lesson he learned many years ago: "Just do the job right." To see some of his art, click here.

Frank Calloway lives at the Alice Kidd Nursing Home at Bryce Hospital in Tuscaloosa.
