At some point I became inspired to do some drawing, probably
after having seeing Jim Dine, Joel Shapiro, Susan Rothenberg
and others work in charcoal on paper over the years. I had been
exposed to rives paper in art school and had to of course work in
the medium but my obsession was painting so that's where I went.
In the late eighties, early nineties I was apparently ready. I ordered
a packet of rives and worked on & off again over the next 10 years
or so.

The drawing below came well before the rives work, though it is on
rives. I had been in the habit of stopping at a club called Moonshadow
for some live music after art openings sometimes. I saw this guy singing
one night & was impressed by how I could see well into his cavity while
he emoted. It's about 11 x 9" & still got it.
