Skeletons 2 (too)
Drawing and painting have occupied much of my career and helped my photography. In the early 21st century, I began a series on skeletons for many reasons including the fact that it was the essence of the human figure. Also, it was a topic, I could not photograph. All of the images are about 8x10 inches and include oils, watercolors, etchings and lithographs. The last two images are selected from hundreds of pencil studies celebrating the human figure.
