  1. Robert, I love these, especially hokey pokey. In the more studied drawings did you use photographs?

    I tried to leave a “like” on the new underpainting of the landscape you’re working on NOW, but I needed to have a password or something.

    Just as it is in sepias, it feels finished (?) also terrific colored oils. Guessing normally not so much snow around the trees.
