Earlier Works

   When I began drawing portraits I was in search of essence, the definitive expression of a personality.  Sometimes my lines were less searching and less tentative than they are now because I had not fully realized that the complexity and fluidity of human nature demanded more suggestive ones. These are done with a 9B pencil on white paper, 16X20 in.

The woodcuts were properly constructed with ink and Japanese papers but the color prints I made from them were experimental and done for the pure pleasure of seeing what accidents might occur.    I used oil paint on tracing paper; a disastrous technique when a hot humid summer caught up with me. Only a few images escaped catastrophic decay.
