Park Abstract

Another caffeine-fueled freakstudy.  I remember after I did a bunch of stuff like this in Illinois, we moved to New York State, pretty near the city, and I thought hey, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock territory, this’ll be fun.  And they were more uptight than midwesterners.  I mean, I had some of my abstract stuff framed and it was worth the money just to see how annoyed they were by my work.  I frame my own stuff now (you should too, save yourself a mint…and try getting your frames at second-hand places like Goodwill).  This drawing was done from life in Lincoln Park in Springfield, Illinois in 2003.  Pretty good range of tone here from the ballpoint pen I used.

6 1/2 x 7 7/8 inches, ballpoint pen on paper, from 2003.  Print is a matted, mounted,  signed 600 dpi print on white acid-free cardstock with half-inch borders, in a limited run of fifty.  I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard.
