Gordon Ellsworth Eis
This is a pencil drawing that is done on toned paper. The paper color is grey and the pencil work is done, of course, in black. There is just a little bit of white chalk to enhance the highlights. The portrait is of my roommate and good friend, Gordon Ellsworth Eis. We traveled to Italy together. He died in 2000 of cancer. I miss him.

Self Portrait at 17
Done at 17 when I was a junior in high school. The book I am holding is now in my son's collection. Done probably in 1942 or 1943, I'm not sure which. It was done using a mirror. I got the eyes kind of cockeyed, and the scale is a little too large. It led me then to go on and do a number of portraits, eventually leading to doing a set of four murals in my high school in which I did full-scale figures at life-size.
Me with Self Portrait
Self Portrait as a Clown
Early Morning Self Portrait
While my wife and my son were still asleep, I came down into the studio early in the morning. I painted this all at once. I have never touched this since. I spent about an hour on it. I had intended to take it up to full color but I never got to that point, and I have decided in my old age to leave it alone. It is one that is pretty accurate to me at that point. Behind me are two of my sculptures; one is called Lamentation and the other is called Ikhenaton, the Egyptian pharaoh.
