Random Drawings,

It's no mystery to anyone who knows me that I love to draw. The great majority of my drawings are never seen for any number of reasons. So, I thought I'd share a couple.

My day begins before K wakes up... materials always ready, I do a quick drawing of her.
 She hears me drawing and begins to emerge from sleep... I continue drawing. 

 K and I begin discussing our plans for the day and other such morning dialog...I keep drawing.
K get's up and has a cup of something warm before we go to the gym.

From time to time she's not home and we Skype... She strikes such good poses while we're talking and I have my materials ready so... I begin to scribble on postit notes.
A little further on in the conversation, the table was littered with postits and I wanted a larger piece of paper... I found the back of a receipt to draw on.
Still chatting away, we both decided to draw each other.

Allentown Art Museum

This panoramic was taken by a friend of mine on his cell phone. It shows my setup last weekend at the Allentown Art Museum, before the crowds came in for a show focusing on imaginary realism. A group show, of sorts to say the least. Although I hear the show was originally intended primarily for collectors, it was so well attended by the public, that the trusties were seen outside taking pictures of the long lines waiting to get in.
 This is not a surprise really. The organizers work hard to gather the most talented, well respected people in the business and they put on a fantastic show.
The artists are the most friendly, encouraging, inspiring group of people anyone could hope to meet. I know almost everyone but made new friends and met others who's work I've admired for years.
To start naming people would make this post much too long but I will say, it was a special pleasure to be in a show with my father and family.
