Tomorrow is a big day for me. My wife and I are hosting a debut party. If all goes well, 11 of the 12 people who were the models for my drawing "The Next Supper" will be meeting each other for the first time. They will also be seeing the completed drawing for the first time. Margaret, the woman at the very end on the right will not be able to attend because tomorrow is her 87th birthday. I've been told she is having a surprise party, so she's having her own celebration. I wonder if Leonardo da Vinci did this?

I started out drawing stick figures when I was a little kid, just like everybody else. When I was 12 I took a group art class. Steve Pugsley was the instructor. I remember really liking the "follow the edge of the object" drawing exercise. In high school I was the year book photographer for three years. I might have taken an art class but I can't say for sure. In college I had one art class that involved graphite, ink, and acrylic paint mediums. My classmates and instructor said I should change my major but I stayed with health sciences. 27 years later I took Drawing & Composition I at the local community college -- just to see what it was like. I was hooked and took Drawing & Composition II followed by Life Drawing. I haven't had time to take anymore classes in the last four years. I have a pretty rough work schedule now, 40-60 hours a week and I work out of town a lot, but I try and fit in portraits when ever I can. Some are commissions, some are family or acquaintances. At first, I couldn't draw for more than two hours at a time before my brain became mush. Now I can work on a drawing for up to nine hours. Time just stops, it doesn't exist when I draw. I think this is a good sign.

I took at look at your favorite folder and it is astonishing how far people can go with just black and white. Your works are also amazing and I can sense the amount of time it took to draw them. Made me think how much better my drawings could be if I spent more time on them.
