APPLES

Pencil on Paper         4¼ x 6½            1996

I was lucky to attend several workshops at Omega Institute with Frederick Franck, who wrote many books on Zen and Art. He made me appreciate “line”, but as much as I enjoyed his exercises in line, I can’t get away from wanting to “color” in the forms. I guess I’m a painter at heart and need to explore value to feel my subject. Line is gorgeous, no argument there, but somehow my drawings don’t feel complete without tone.
