These are drawings that I submitted to the 2014 Orland Art Center Group Show. All were accepted. The show was juried and runs from August 1st through August 23rd, 2014 in Orland, California. Drawing people is my strong suit and I really like doing it. I don’t really like to draw photographically although I can do it. My thought is: why draw photographically when cameras abound? I prefer to draw realistically but add expression to capture the personality of the person. This is the advantage of being an artist. The artist can make choices the camera cannot. All the drawings are large: 24″ x 36″.






“The Riddle”

From The Riddle a poem by Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

Always eyes east

Ponders she now—

As in devotion—

Hills of blank brow

Where no waves plough.

Never the least

Room for emotion

Drawn from the ocean

Does she allow.
