My multitudinous deadlines keep me from taking on extra projects as a rule. I seldom look up from my drawing board, and when I do I see my large family looking longingly at me for attention. Seems lately that every extra drawing I agree to do haunts me from my bulletin board until finally I get around to it, often weeks late, stretching the patience of all involved.
Nonetheless, I've completed a couple of projects recently that I'm proud of and wanted to share with you.
This is a print I've done for the Cincinnati Art Museum's 125th Anniversary. It may be lost on non-Cincinnatians who don't know the museum, but it refers to the creation of four iconic works from the collection: Jim Dine's Bathrobe
; Andy Warhol's Pete Rose
;Grant Wood's Daughters of the American Revolution
; and Frank Duveneck's Whistling Boy
I tried to imagine the relationship between the artist and his subject as he worked.
The CAM has made a black-and-white print of the piece available through their gift shop. Images of the original paintings and drawing I've referred to may be on the CAM website.
