Batty Old Man
Acrylic on Shuen Paper
I have been working on a series of figure brush drawings in the past several months. When this show was announced I thought it would be fun to do a self-portrait in the same style. My interest in this Asian-oriented drawing approach goes back to the early 1970’s in my MFA studies at the University of Illinois. There I had the great good fortune to become associated with Shozo Sato, a Japanese National Treasure and master of many Japanese arts.
