A drawing of five men by Leonardo da Vinci had a startling impact upon me when I first saw it. It still does. Yesterday's second drawing (above) reminded me of da Vinci's drawing (below). This is not the first time I have drawn, or painted, an image of several men in a circle of deliberation. In graduate school, and after meeting Philip Guston, I produced a similar figurative composition (see it at PICTORIAL HISTORY of 1977-1979). Events like this, producing works which full circle into images which ignited my passion to make art, are base indicators of who I am.
