This is a drawing in my moleskin of my friend Ray Beale who is one of the best portrait photographers I’ve ever met. He also taught me more about color than anyone else. Interesting, since most of his work is black & white. Ray recently went on vacation in New Orleans. He flew over 2,000 miles and stayed a day and a half and then returned.
So much for vacations. Here’s the quote about being an artist: “It’s very interesting being legendary when you can’t even make a living & the public has never heard of you” Florine Stettheimer.
