What you see before you is not some fairyland or storybook paradise but the view from my roof of nearby backyards. We are looking approximately North by Northeast. If you scroll back to the drawing of Thursday, June 5, you may picture me on the upper left side of the drawing with my back against the dormer, scribbling away. I dare say that nobody walked by and asked me what I was drawing or why I was drawing it. No one yelled out the window "what the hell are you doing on the roof?!?" either. This drawing was done with the usual suspects.

Ahhh. It's good to be back!

Hey Art: The dark shapes of the trees framing the rest of the composition...just terrific! Perfect balance of lights and darks. Tasty shading. Keep doing more of these! Tom

yet another wonderful drawing of fab manyunk! I'm telling you, I see a whole series here my lad. You hit it on the nose, fairytale, storybook, fable, I hope your creative juices are stirring around inside that blender of yours spud. I always thought the views into those wonderful cemetaries on Dupont were great, with that great library across the way. Now, think of night scenes, maybe the steps down the hill, the train tracks, even the bridges by main street. Anyway,wonderful art work, nice eye for details...glorious!!!
