Art Created in Boston
Attending school and working various jobs I moved around a lot in the Boston area from 1975 to 1980. My stomping grounds included living in Brookline, Brighton and Dorchestor. Each living and working situation offered opportunities to see and create art for me.
My roommates were often interesting and creative individuals. We encouraged and supported one another be it writing, music, photography or painting along with sharing rent and utility bills.

Third Floor Flat
I loved the room I had in a top floor flat in Brookline. On sunny days light poured in giving my hanging plants the light they craved and warmed up my room.
A small walkout porch was off my room so I'd sit and read, draw, or just hang out there. It offered a great view of the street and buildings in the area. The pen and ink drawing below was done sitting outside and viewing the house across the street. A snap shot of a view I saw for about a year.
This sketch was done in about five minutes because my friend didn't want to sit very long. Despite the brief time I had to capture him I was happy with the end result.
A high school art teacher of mine used to have us speed draw our fellow classmates in two minute, one minute and thirty second poses. It was a pressured way to draw, but an interesting way to capture a brief pose. In this particular situation my past experience with drawing quickly came in handy.
