Jacob Lawrence

Portrait of artist Jacob Lawrence- Seattle WA

I've been scanning and cataloging some of my older work- a type of spring cleaning I suppose. This painting of the artist Jacob Lawrence is from 1986 when I attended a presentation he and Gwen Lawrence gave at the Seattle Art Museum. I sketched him as he talked and went back to my old studio in Fremont to complete the painting. Both artists have long passed, but their works live on, and so does Jacob on the wall in my hallway.
