Are these recent? I see a connection between them and your article on the locker room guys. Beautiful drawings.

Yes Nancy, they are related to Leonard's work. I've drawn tonally before but I surely took from him conceptually.
Scottso . . . yes Seurat too . . . I remember when you were inspired by seurat's work. And yes I kinda agree . . his drawings have something special that his paintings don't. I actually think that that happens often. I often respond more to an artist drawings more then the paintings. Excluding people like Chase, and Duveneck (sp?), and Henri and John Kock, and Dickinson. Lets see how many artist's I can name and impress with. UMMMM any who. I think about the same issue. For me the key is keeping the same level of observation and searching in the painting as the drawing, as not to create a colored drawing. Maybe Seurat paintings are a bit like colored drawings. Good convo . . . thanks.
Thanks for coming by Julie and Victor and Jim, your comments on intimacy and drawing and of course the compliment means a lot to me.
