Iam more than 1/2 finished with Geology and I am thankful that one assignment each chapter is a sketch! This has saved my sanity! It helps me think and gives me an great outlet during a very tough class! Art does salve most problems...My Dave say Math runs the world but I like art does! :-) Night night
I love this picture, the t-shirt is awesome, we saw Basquiat together at the Tivoli, (in 1996 wow such a long time ago! )
the drinking bird was an obsession, I remember finding one for Bob at Spicers, he was so happy and proud of that! Great work came out of that! The Painting below was around the same time...so vibrant and funny.
It has been a hard day. I said good bye to my mentor. I always loved art, and people said (ok my Dad) said I had talent. I fooled around with it. Bob showed me the process of creating art. The research, the passion, the obsession. He impacted my life!
I did love you Bob, I love the times we had. I was standing at your grave...I always knew this day would come and yes I am pissed that you are not here, I half expected you to jump out from behind a tree but sadly you did not...
This was our last exchange and as silly as facebook is, this is nice to have.
I thank you for my design sense and helping me launch my career but most of all you have a place in my heart that has all the fun we had and has that great connection artist get to have, it is rare, it is profound! Thanks Bob, I really hope you and John are having Brandy Alexanders today! XOXO
