2014: 25 drawings

Each: 13.5 x 9 in. (34 x 22 cm) 

After living in NYC for about 20 years, I moved to the Hudson Valley. (75miles north)

I found myself using color instead of making mainly black and white drawings.

I never really had a need for color before. 

Interesting side note: this paper is made by paper mill De Middelste Molen in the Netherlands. They have been in business since mid 1600's.  And yes, Rembrandt bought paper here too.
