I am not quite sure why I find this drawing/painting so satisfying, but I do, totally. It feels completely resolved, and rather like it always existed, effortlessly emerging at some point from this sheet of muted green paper, which, scuffed and smudged, feels like its been around forever too. I believe it is actually a portrait of the late artist and longtime art professor Leon Hovsepian of Worchester, MA, at whose estate sale I purchased it; perhaps done by a colleague or former student. It reminds me a bit of a Raymond Pettibon drawing, or something by someone else well known I can't quite put my finger on, and perhaps Hovsepian held on to it precisely because that student went on to great art world fame. Its unsigned, so who knows? In any event, I think it's super!
10 1/4" x 8 1/2". There are a few small tears around the edges of the paper, which I think really just add to its aura!
