This is a colored pencil drawing, about 11" x 14", of an Olmec situation. The Olmec were the ancient Pre-Columbian people who are famous for their gigantic sculptures of heads. This drawing is of one such head, with additions.

You can bid on this drawing on eBay, starting at a measly $5.00, at the following URL:

Bamiyan Buddha

This is a color drawing of the Buddha from a sculpture at the St. Louis Art Museum. The drawing is about 16" x 24", in Prismacolor Artstix on tinted charcoal paper. I love this sculpture; it has a look that is regal and transcendent and serene. And I am happy with this drawing. Really speaking, the sculpture is so beautiful that it is hard to draw it badly.

Red Frog

This is a serigraph image, about 11" x 14" in size, in silkscreen ink on unbleached muslin. This image was printed using paper stencils. I learned by bitter personal experience that if not handled properly, paper stencils disintegrate during the printing process. For this reason, there are only two of these frog prints in existence. Both copies are now in the hands of very dear friends of mine.
