Artist's Description

I was wandering through a Danish Furniture store many years ago and came upon this image that was being used as a sample photo inside a very nice frame that was for sale. I asked the clerk if I could buy it from him, I didn’t want the frame, just the print in it. After explaining to him that I wanted to draw it, he gladly disassembled the frame and gave me the print. It was a cut out page from a magazine from who knows where. It measured 5″×7″
I drew it at 11″×14″ but wished I had gone a bit larger. While looking at this photo I couldn’t help but think that this man must have spent many years near or on the ocean as his face was littered with wrinkles. To me, wrinkles don’t show age, they show emotion and wisdom.

Rob.
