Arel& MaryAnneWPSpring of 1963. Yet more attempts at portraiture, freshman year at RISD, nostalgically evoking two close friends still back in Maine, Arel Dolby and Mary Anne Chesley. The medium: Prismacolor pencils on bond paper. Having really ‘discovered’ the exciting possibilities of colored pencils through Nature Drawing earlier that school year, I free-hand drew portraits of my friends based on photos from senior year, enlarging them from 2.5″ x 3.5″ b&w photos to an 11″ x 14″ sheet, in color no less. Original drawings are now in the possession of the persons portrayed.

1995??WPSpring of 1994 or thereabouts. The Crocus Patch in earlier days, not sure what month, when they were definitely lusher than they are so far this year.
