I am not so sure that the written word can measure up where art is concerned. However, a few notes as to my work. I use Strathmore 100% cotton paper from the 1970’s, back when my future was limitless, I found this surface worked perfectly for my style of pencil work. I do not employ any tricks to complete my ideas—if I need to take a photo of something, it is not used to make my subject matter any easier to come alive on the paper, only to allow me the time to make it happen. There are no graphs, no overhead projectors, etc …. only my eyes and hands and the pencils that feel so comfortable in my right hand. It is my fervent hope that I might find a market for my work. I hope you are just as amazed as I am when I step back and a piece is finished. It is a wonderful surprise.
