8" X 11"
I have developed, or maybe just discovered,
a satisfaction with building color tone and value using pastel
pigment on sandpaper card. Though consistent with my drawing
style, the color pigments and layered building of form take
these works someplace between graphite drawing and molding
the figure in clay. It feels like the two dimension transitioning
into three. This man, though crippled from birth, is unwavering
in his determination to lead a productive life and works every
day. The will of the human spirit goes deep.
