Following a postponement of close to thirty years I revisited a series of simple pencil studies I had worked on soon after leaving school. From these studies I launched a delayed but renewed creative effort of colored pencil drawings and acrylic paintings.
For the last few years most of what I have done has been generated by an experience with my grandson. He had put together an airplane using popular children's building bricks and asked me to draw it. Their geometric forms, their pure colors along with the creative vision of a child embodied in these toys captured my adult attention and spurred much of my work for the last few years.
