*I just love those exceptional shades of gray, white, and black. *Your work makes pencils the ultimate basic tool of a refined artist. *Your art makes a pencil seem so far from basic and simplistic. *It is a piece of great art that has me wondering how do you do it?!!! *Those many enriching hours of artistry on canvas paper were of essence!!! *I have enjoyed your work and profound dedication. *I truly admire your excellence and worship of the pencil. *BRAVO!!!
