"Jonny's dad, Rick, has just passed away, and we are here in Hebo, 
spending time with his mom, and having an afternoon of art therapy.
Jonny found some great old photo albums, and a portrait of Rick from
when he was 15. I haven't drawn or sketched in quite awhile, years, but I gave 
it a shot working from the portrait. I have clearly taken artistic liberties, but 
somewhere in there, is Rick's spirit."

"I drew this U.F.O. using colored pencils and oil pastels. I just let my imagination take over and this is what it came up with. Maybe it's my love of early sci-fi films that took me there (and boy did I go there). I was able to push and mold some of the oils with the colored pencils. It was a bit like carving colors, FUN!"
