The Old Man...

This is a miniature painting (Pen and Water color) I did way back in 1986 or  87 when I was in high school ! I remember copying it from a photograph in a magazine...Less than 10 works from my school days have only  survived...

  10. I have regrets over the things I have created in the past and did not save. It's fun to look at these things and see how our art has progressed.
