Hi Kevin- Now I'm even more jealous! You own originals by two of my favorite artists! That's insane! To give you a little background on myself. I got my BFA from the College of Visual Arts here in St. Paul Minnesota. I didn't get the traditional drawing and painting skills I wanted from the school so I began drawing and painting at art co-ops in the city here and began really taking studying the figure and trying to develop my skills seriously. And now I can't get enough of painting and drawing from life. Even though everyday I try to paint from life I'm humbled by how much I really suck! LOL. But I'm determined to get better. So I guess you could say I'm kind of self taught.
Thanks for the drawing supplies info!
Keep up the great work!
