Drawing: Silverpoint on Paper.

I can be ambushed by an image jumping out of something I see, out of something I read, out of something I hear, or, as in this case, out of thin air. I don't know where this came from. But for some reason giant cranes keep turning up in my work. The last time was in my painting 'Eldorado.' Maybe this man too was on his way to some impossible dream and - like the gallant knight in Poe's poem - didn't make it.

As I've said elsewhere, I made my own gesso ground for my silverpoint drawings, following the recipes of the old masters.

The W Series
These are mostly drawings, with an occasional etching or mezzotint, that I had been keeping in my studio as reference material since 1983 and took to Taylor's Contemporanea Fine Arts in Hot Springs in 1996. That is, this is what's left of that batch, which I numbered w1 though w67. This was a salon gallery, a beautiful home transformed into a gallery by the owner, Carolyn Taylor. Upstairs was the Criswell room, my paintings on the wall, sculptures on pedestals, some chairs and a sofa for watching my animations. Carolyn's husband Delbert shrink-wrapped these works on paper onto foamcore boards, all archival materials, and during her monthly openings Carolyn would spread them out on a large table. Many were sold before she retired and shut down the gallery a few years ago. Since then they have been in a box. I've decided it's time to spread them out on the table again.
