    My son is doing a report on Butch Cassidy, who is a shirt tail relative. We also own the spot where the Sundance Kid planned a bank robbery. I thought it would be cool to take the picture of Cassidy with the wild bunch, put him on the porch of the bank robbery cabin from our place, and draw it inside a picture of Robbers roost. We projected the pictures on the wall and traced them. The cool thing about it is we used charcoal from our fireplace to do all but some of the detail around Butch. He’s pretty excited for his report.

    Looks like Bigfoot at the top of that peak.

    Good Job by the way....

    That's great and well done Cowboy. Larger drawings are challenging and your growing confidence.

    Can you imagine how many cadavers that artist had to examine to come to know the muscles like he does.

    There is some great B&W photography also on display. Well worth taking the time to check it out, if you are on campus.

    Maybe not the right thread, but I wanted to post some work by the son of a woman whom I tutor. I've mentioned it before, but I signed up as tutor at our local library to assist those who are new to the USA (or, in Trumpian terms, those who are infesting our country). I really wish those who fear the effects of refugees and immigrants would get to know some of them. No doubt there are unfortunate exceptions, but the large majority of those I've met are very motivated to better themselves and their families, and to make a contribution to their new homeland. One woman i've been working with for over a year came here from China. She's very bright, loves to learn and is raising two talented young kids. She has a son who is a sophmore in high school and (at least to my untrained eye) is a great artist--he's hoping to get into a top design or art school in two years. Here are three of his recent works in which he's tried different styles. The first is entitled "Night Falls in San Francisco," the second is an abstract piece reflecting his concern about poachers in Africa, and the third is a portrait he calls simply "Old Man in Costume." Having recently read the Da Vinci bio, I've gained a deeper appreciation for artists who use light and shading effectively--this kid's doing that at an early age (he'll be a junior this year).

    That “Old Man” is excellent.

    Really cool work you are doing PAC. I think I would enjoy doing something like that. Given that most ESL students have better grammar than I do, I’m not sure how much help I would be.

    Great work—he will get into whatever art and design school he wants.
