I was asked recently about my paintings. I'm reluctant to post much about them here because the focus of this site is life drawing and gestural life drawing in particular. However, I thought I would post this relic from 2004 for a few reasons.

Three: The hockey season is about to begin and I'm am very excited with the Bruins' decision to go old school with their jerseys!
