"The Man with a Pipe" 1969 --oil-- 34" x 30"

note: This is one of the smaller "black paintings." I am in the process of photographing some of the others, and will post them soon. I consider them to be the first truly personal works I produced (plenty of influences, but still personal). They constituted my "Cresson Wall" in 1969. I was awarded one of these miraculous grants, and Lill and I spent that summer traveling in Europe. I was contrasting "formalist" art with the more content oriented work to which I was drawn.
